Christopher Bell has won his third straight Chili Bowl Nationals on Saturday night. Bell used a late pass to win the “Super Bowl of Midget Racing” after 55 laps at the River Spirit Expo in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

He is one of two drivers ever in Chili Bowl Nationals history to win more than three races. The other was Kevin Swindell, who won four straight races. Swindell had his four straight go from 2010 through 2013, before his streak was snapped by the late Bryan Clauson.

Sammy Swindell has the most Chili Bowl Nationals wins all-time with five. His last win came in 2009.

This is the fifth straight win for Keith Kunz and the Curb Agajanian team. Besides Bell’s three wins, Rico Abreu also won with the team in 2015 and 2016.

One year ago, Bell defeated Abreu for the win. In 2017, Bell had to beat Daryn Pittman for the win.

Larson — who races at dirt tracks around the country when he’s not racing in NASCAR — finished second. Despite his success on the track and on the dirt, Larson has never won the Chili Bowl Nationals.

Justin Grant was the third-place finisher. Brady Bacon was fourth, while Zach Daum was fifth.
