DOVER, Del. (AP) — Christopher Bell raced to his third Xfinity Series victory of the season, winning an extra $100,000 for taking the checkered flag at Dover International Speedway.
Bell also won at Dover for the second straight time, though he led only 44 laps on Saturday compared with 110 last fall. Bell also won this season at Atlanta and Bristol and has 11 career wins in NASCAR’s second-tier series in just 51 starts.
Bell matched Kyle Busch, who stars in the elite Cup series, for most Xfinity wins this season.
He earned a $100,000 bonus for scoring the highest finish among a field of four drivers in the “Dash 4 Cash” incentive program. Bell gave his checkered flag to a young fan in the stands.
Justin Allgaier was second and Tyler Reddick third. Pole-sitter Cole Custer led a race-high 156 laps but faded and finished fourth.
