No. 20 DEWALT Toyota Camry TRD News and Notes:
- Dover Motor Speedway: Christopher Bell will make his fourth NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) start at Dover Motor Speedway this weekend. Bell first competed at Dover in the Cup car in the doubleheader weekend in 2020 and then in 2021 he qualified 11th and finished 21st.

- Talladega Recap: Bell led the field to the green at Talladega described the car as “bouncy” throughout stage one. The team worked on handling throughout the race and after leaving pit road late in the final stage another car hit the right front of Bell’s No. 20 and spun him. The spin flat spotted the tires and left the team needing a caution to fall to come in for tires and to claim the “lucky dog” position. A caution never came in time and Bell finished one lap down in 22nd.

From the Cockpit:
Christopher Bell: “I love Dover, it’s always been one of my favorites. I ran really well in the Xfinity car there. I’ve raced in three Cup races at Dover, including the double header in 2020, and just haven’t been able to get going for some reason, but I expect us to be really fast this year. Hopefully we are able to contend.”
