The reigning Camping World Truck Series champion will make his full-time shift into the Xfinity Series this season. Bell is fresh off a five-win, 21 Top 10 campaign in the trucks that was nearly flawless from start to finish in 2017. The 23-year-old Oklahoman squeezed in eight starts in this racing series last year, and opened some eyes in that part-time slate. Bell won his first-career Xfinity Series race at Kansas, and he nabbed five Top-10 finishes in that short schedule. The young driver will be paired with ace crew chief Jason Ratcliff in an effort to win both Rookie of the Year and the championship in the upcoming season. Bell's talent is undeniable. He's just another in a long line of very talented development drivers that JGR has cranked out the last several years.
Car: No. 20 Toyota   Crew Chief: Jason Ratcliff

  2. Christopher Bell 2017 Preseason Outlook
    With the departure of William Byron, Bell now becomes the focus of KBM's efforts in the truck series. Bell had a pretty good campaign last season with one victory and 17 Top-10 finishes. Not bad at all for his first full season of racing in the Camping World Truck Series. Bell will look to improve even more in the upcoming season. He'll be paired with Rudy Fugle at crew chief. He's the brilliant strategist that led Byron to a seven-win campaign at KBM last season. The combination of Fugle and Bell should pay immediate dividends. We expect to see Bell pick up the pace in victories, laps led and Top 10's. That could propel the young driver to his first championship in the coming season.
  3. Christopher Bell 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Young talent Bell takes over the No. 51 Toyota truck full-time that featured a multi-driver lineup last season. Bell was a part of that rotation logging six starts in the No. 51 truck. He posted a very noteworthy win in the popular dirt-track race at Eldora, and that put this rising star on the NASCAR map. He also added three Top-10 finishes in his seven start slate last season. Bell will team with crew chief Jerry Baxter in his first full season in the series. It will be interesting to see what this young, raw talent can do in a full 23-race slate. With the backing of Kyle Busch Motorsports and their fast trucks, the skies the limit for Bell in 2016.
