NEWTON, Iowa (AP) Christopher Bell has been one of NASCAR’s rising young stars for the past few years.
Over the past few weeks, Bell and the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 car has been so hot that he’s threatening to put his name in some pretty select company.
Bell, a 23-year-old Oklahoma native and an Xfinity series rookie, has won each of the last two races. He heads into Saturday night’s race at Iowa Speedway seeking to become the first series regular with a three-race winning streak since Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 1999.
Kyle Busch, who Bell won a title for in the trucks series last year, did it four times between 2008 and 2016. But Busch was also running full-time in the Cup series – something Bell might be doing sooner rather than later if he keeps winning like he has.
