CWTS: Bell wins for 4th time this season

(MRN) Christopher Bell survived a late side-by-side duel with John Hunter Nemechek, finally pulling ahead seven laps from the finish and keeping his Number-4 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in front the rest of the way to claim victory Saturday at Pocono Raceway. Pole winner Ben Rhodes made a late push to nab second place and Ryan Truex came home third. Nemechek faded to fourth place down the stretch and Johnny Sauter completed the top five. It’s the third straight Pocono victory for K-B-M – which won with its team owner behind the wheel in 2015 and William Byron last summer. Bell’s fourth win of the year moves him into first place in the regular-season standings, now eighteen points ahead of Sauter – who entered the weekend in the top spot.
