Christopher Bell won’t change approach in Xfinity Series Playoffs

Christopher Bell has found an approach to racing that works, and he’s not about to change it when the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs start Sept. 21 at Richmond.

A four-time winner this year, Bell plans to continue to strive for victories in the postseason.

“For me, I suck at points racing,” said Bell, who finished fifth in Thursday night’s BC39 USAC National Midget feature at a dirt track built near Turn 3 in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway infield. “I’m going to be out there trying to win races. My team has done an excellent job bringing fast race cars to the track every single week.

“Every single week, we have an opportunity to win the race. My finishes have been top fives or wrecks, so we’ve won enough that we’ve got a lot of bonus (Playoff) points that will hopefully carry us through any hard times. We’re going to go out there and try to win.”
