ST. LOUIS, MO – Christopher Bell backed up his win last week at the Turkey Night Grand Prix with another victory in the midget division, this time in the inaugural event for the midgets at the VP Racing Fuels Gateway Dirt Nationals.
Rounding out the top five were Shane Golobic, Rico Abreu, Zach Daum and Chris Windom. NASCAR star Kyle Larson spun with only a few laps to go, relegating him to a disappointing 17th place finish.
It was also a disappointing night for northeast drivers Tim McCreadie, Alex Bright and Billy Pauch Jr as all of them failed to make it out of their respective B mains to make the feature.
All of the eyes in the midget racing world now shift to the 2019 edition of the Chili Bowl, where Christopher Bell will enter as one of the favorites for sure.
