Christopher Bell Running Vegas Truck Race for TRICON

Christopher Bell will return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with TRICON Garage at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, TRICON announced Feb. 26.

Bell will drive the No. 1, which has been piloted by Toni Breidinger and Colby Howard so far this season.

Mobil 1 will sponsor the effort.

“It’s always really fun to compete in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and I’m very excited to race with Mobil 1 under the lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” Bell said in a team release. “I really appreciate Toyota, TRD, TRICON and Mobil 1 for the opportunity, I’ve come close to the win at Vegas before in Trucks and would love to make it happen this time.”
