"Once in a lifetime. This week was once in a lifetime, "It's special to win the Chili Bowl. With over 300 something cars, it's always going to be special, but I'm disappointed. I feel like Kyle got robbed, I got robbed, and the fans got robbed. I wanted to race it out, and I know the fans wanted us to race it out too so I'm disappointed we didn't get to do that, but I'd rather be lucky than good any day,"Christopher Bell 2018 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl winner
