Kyle Busch celebrates Christopher Bell's Chili Bowl triumph

BY Joe Menzer • January 15, 2017

Kyle Busch didn't win the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl on Saturday night. In fact, he wasn't even entered.

But he reacted like a proud father when he learned that Christopher Bell did.

Bell won the Chili Bowl, one of dirt racing's most prestigious events, on Saturday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For Bell, a native of Norman, Oklahoma, it was indeed a dream come true. He even said the Chili Bowl, for him, was "like the Daytona 500."

But in his day job, Bell drives the No. 4 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He finished third in points last year in his first full season. Busch owns KBM along with his wife, Samantha.

So when Bell won the Chili Bowl, Busch immediately took to social media to help celebrate it.

FOX Sports NASCAR reporter Kaitlyn Vincie also was in the house in Tulsa and offered up a congratulations that all of us at FOX wish to extend to Bell on his triumph.
