Christopher Bell cruises to Xfinity win at New Hampshire

It was a clean sweep for Christopher Bell in his first NASCAR Xfinity Series start since 2019.

Bell, driving the No. 54 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing for the first time this season, won Stages 1 and 2 and beat Justin Allgaier by 6.2 seconds to win Saturday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

It’s his 17th career win in the series third at the 1-mile track in Loudon, N.H.

Bell led twice for 151 of the 200 laps, including the final 146.

“What I got figured out is that I have really, really fast race cars to drive. I just love being here with Joe Gibbs Racing,” Bell said. “The Supras I’ve had the last three times I’ve been here have been amazing. I hope my Camry is just as good tomorrow. It feels good to win.

“I think these weekends with no practice and qualifying and you’re not sitting in the car until they drop the green flag, it’s a really big advantage (to drive in Xfinity). Especially a place like here where the Xfinity rules package is similar to the Cup rules package.

“Hopefully it will be very similar and we’ll have a really fast Camry tomorrow. I’m just really proud to be at Joe Gibbs Racing. Everybody does an amazing job.”

Daniel Hemric was third, Austin Cindric was fourth and Harrison Burton rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Justin Haley, Myatt Snider, Josh Berry, Brett Moffitt and Riley Herbst, who spun out early in the race.
