Have some friends that have known Bell and his family for about 15 years, not the typical rich/pay-to-play story you see these days. Not even a racing family as his dad was a basketball coach, but almost everyone speak highly of them.

It was a big win with the dirt track community.... as well as some of my family in OKC that have been huge fans for a long long time, ha.

Pretty wild how legit TRD was with their development program not too long ago, now it's a joke.

Seeing Kyle B get punted into the wall was my favorite part. His paint scheme was badass though. Lotta Bobby Labonte vibes from it.

Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

He's kind of been a crap show the last year. Was really good after signing that huge contract in 2019, but the whole feel has been weird for a little while now.

I can't stand him but I'd say he's been a lot more unlucky than a crap show.

I'm more so pointing out the toxic nature, which results have helped that. Think getting told each week last year that he's not good without practice got under his skin as well.

Bristol Dirt was pretty fun. One time a year is fine by me.
Annoyed that logano ended up winning. Boring

Daycare was closed so I had a lot of TV watching to do with little ww.
there wasn't alot of passing up front so that was kind of disappointing to me. But it was different. Kyle B had to pit within the first 5 laps of the race after taking the lead due to mud on his grill. Audibly cackled. Larson was in like 4 wrecks.

Big mistake having it during the day. Dirt tracks simply can't keep the needed moisture for racing multiple grooves during the day (for that long of a race).. Even just hours after historic rainfall/flooding in the area.

Track got nasty dry and the best racing was the first 10 laps of the last stage, when they watered the hell out of it (still wasn't enough to hold for long).

Sounds like everyone involved learned a ton, though.. and this might become a yearly event now.

The car setups and tires were way better than I was expecting. Next year will be interesting with the Next Gen.
