Then in the A-Main event, he bicycles through the third turn trying to hold on to the lead position. (MIDDLE) As flagman Terry Mattox signals the drivers two laps remaining in the A-Main, Christopher Bell (71w) has his hands full with a determined Shane Golobic (17c) making his bid for the lead position.

A finish for the ages, Kyle Larson looked to have his first Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire in hand, but with a furious run as the leaders worked into traffic, Christopher Bell found the hole on the low line entering turn one on the white flag lap to win his third Golden Driller in a row aboard the iRacing/Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71w   Joe Orth Photo

Say What!

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be able to win the Chili Bowl. To do it three straight times is just unbelievable, but man, I don't even care about three-straight. What about that race? I don't think I've ever really been a part of a last lap race like that, so I'm just glad that thing came out in the end," stated Christopher Bell who earned Keith Kunz his eighth Golden Driller as a car owner.

"It was a lot busier than what I wanted them to be. Shane (Golobic) definitely made a race out of it and I hope the last four laps were a good show. It was a lot of fun ... well it was fun because I won but if I hadn't won it wouldn't have been much fun." Christopher Bell says in Victory Lane winning Lucas Oil Chili Bowl night 4.

"This win is for Donnie Ray Crawford, Jason Johnson, Greg Hodnett, Jason Leffler and every driver that couldn't be with us tonight," Rico Abreu says in Victory Lane winning Lucas Oil Chili Bowl night 3.

"That might be the second time I got Zach (Daum) in a prelim night,They work the track before the feature so as the leader you just run the bottom until you hear somebody or see somebody. I was just able to get around him....It was just nice to get to the lead there and run a good pace, but I was hoping I would get a caution before I got close to traffic."Kyle Larson winning Lucas Oil Chili Bowl night 2

"To have the night we had, everything just fell into place and that's kind of what it takes for this race is for stuff just to go your way," commented Logan Seavey winning Lucas Oil Chili Bowl night 1

I won those back to back years and I kind of had a slump year and came back to be competitive. Last year I felt I wasn't as good as the top two but if the roles were reversed, I think if I was in a little better position I think where they could chase me instead of me chasing them.
