Christopher Bell hopes to 'pull another rabbit out of the hat" after unlucky end to NASCAR Las Vegas outing
Joe Gibbs Racing driver Christopher Bell had an unlucky day at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last Sunday.
He was an unwitting spectator at Bubba Wallace Jr. and Kyle Larsson on lap 94, jeopardizing Bell's opening championship hopes.

Although his team tried to repair it, his #18 Toyota Camry was badly damaged.
As a result, Bell left the race early and was awarded 34th place.
Since he was dropped from the race, his chances of advancing to Championship 4 have diminished.
He is currently ranked last among the playoff drivers in the championship standings.
Bale is once again at the bottom to be eliminated in the 2022 playoffs. Driver #20 was in a similar position going into the Round 12 elimination race at the Charlotte ROVAL,
but revived his championship hopes with an impressive victory. To proceed to round 8.
He would repeat the same performance in the remaining two races of the round at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Martinsville Speedway.
Speaking to the media during a post-race interview, Christopher Bell said he hopes to have another impressive victory, as he did at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course.
"The good thing is that I feel better winning one of those two races than winning the Roval.
We have very, very strong Camrys right now - all year round indeed. Let's see if we can get another one off the cap." Rabbits can be taken out."
