Christopher Bell: We had a lot of things working against us

Christopher Bell impressed many with his performances this season. Bell spoke to motorsport.com about his impressions. “From the first 10 races into the season, I knew that our performance and capability was there. We had a lot of things working against us,” Bell said, as quoted by motorsport.com “Whenever we left I want to say Atlanta, I don’t remember what race Atlanta was in the season, but three or four races in we were positioned last in the points standings.

I think a lot of people had written me off as a driver, written the No. 20 car off, ‘Christopher is going to get fired’ – I got that all the time; that I’m getting replaced. The No. 20 car is the revolving door, he’s going to be out of here.

We’re still alive. That feels really good. I wouldn’t have guessed that a week ago or even five hours ago”.

Bell reflected on the nervousness he felt, but nothing can stop him from achieving good results.

“I feel extremely good about what we have going on here in the next three races. Ever since the schedule laid out and we were looking at the playoffs, the Round of 16 all were really good race tracks for us,” he said.

“The Round of 12 with Talladega and (the Roval) in there, I was super-concerned and nervous. I still felt like we were going to be able to make it through it because we’re really good at Texas. Whenever we left (Texas) with a whopping three points, I was just really down, down in the dumps, sad.

Then we went to Talladega, and we needed a home run. We needed lot of points, and we didn’t score a lot of points. This whole last two weeks, I had been extremely deflated, just kind of down in the dumps”.
