Christopher Bell became the 14th NAACAR Cup Series winner this season coming out victorious Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Just a few days after his win the JGF driver made an appearance on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, where he discussed his race, including his pit crew’s star performance.
Bell interestingly mentioned Bubba Wallace and the recent exchange of numerous members between each other pit crew and how, unlike Bubba, he prefers not to call out his crew members.

Wallace’s pit crew has struggled majority of this season and earned the anger of Bubba after penalties at Kansas and a loose wheel at Nashville that led to Wallace expressing his frustration on the team’s radio calling them out.
“They killed it on pit road this week and really at Atlanta, too,” C. Bell said during an recent interview on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “They did amazing, and unfortunately, they got that black eye at the end for the mistake. But they did really well. I left Atlanta feeling optimistic about our group.”
“Bubba has been very vocal about his group of people and his struggles on pit road, where I typically do not,” Bell added. “I just don’t make a lot of noise. I don’t try to bring attention to myself, but my pit road issues have been just as bad as him, for the most part, and maybe even worse.

“Whenever they shook up the rosters between mine and him, I was perfectly fine with it because it couldn’t get any worse than the way that it was going. It worked out and both of our groups — the 23 and the 20 group — had a great day last week at Loudon.”
Christopher Bell led the last 42 laps of the 301-lapper at the 1.058-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway, to take home the trophy.
