Christopher Bell was evaluated and released from a local Daytona hospital early Saturday morning after he was transported as a precaution following a last lap accident in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
Christopher Bell, who drives for Kyle Busch Motorsports, emerged from his truck under his own power and walked to an ambulance after his No. 4 Toyota flipped multiple times on the last lap. Bell was first taken to the track’s infield care facility before being transported off-site for further evaluation.
Bell was released from the hospital early Saturday morning, according to a statement from his team:
“Kyle Busch Motorsports driver Christopher Bell was involved in a late-race accident during the running of Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway. Bell was transported to a local hospital following the accident as a precaution and was evaluated and released early Saturday morning.”
Johnny Sauter won the race when the yellow flag waved as Bell’s truck began to roll, signaling the end of the race. Sauter, who was 0.139 seconds ahead of Ryan Truex at the time, credited Bell with pushing him to victory.
