Kokomo Win Gives Midget Week Title To Bell
Bell got a good look at the lead duo before eventually making his move, saying, “I was waiting to see what would happen when Kyle and Mosen were battling, and then I was able to get going good on the bottom to get to second. But then I said, ‘You know what, I’m gonna go ahead and go for it,’ and it ended up working. This is my first Midget Week with Keith. This is really special to me. I can’t say enough about these cars — they really are the best out here.”
Larson recovered to finish second in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD No. 71k Bullet/Speedway Toyota, making it three top-two finishes in his three starts for the week.
“I’ve been telling everybody about how good Chris Bell is, and nobody believes me, but hopefully now everybody sees what I’m saying. Hopefully, he can keep doing what he’s doing. I knew the bottom probably wasn’t the place to be, at least in one and two, but I got he lead down there and felt really good down there in three and four. He was just able to get a lot of momentum and not make any mistakes and drive around me, which was pretty impressive. I biked it up a couple times trying to stay up with him after he went past me,” Larson said.
Caleb Armstrong came on strong in the final few laps to net third in the C&A Motorsports – Winfield Racing No. 7c Beast/Stanton Toyota, after leading most of Saturday night’s Feature.
“We just kept getting better and better through the feature. I finally got moved up all the way, and we got rolling really well. The curb was pretty decent tonight, but we were fast up there. This was a tough week, and we were trying to figure out a new car still, but we got the thing going great at the end of the week,” Armstrong said.
Mosen and Zach Daum completed the top five.
