“We have the best notebook to build off of. All of our teammates had moments of being really good,” Adam Stevens, Bell’s crew chief, said. “It’s too early to tell if there is some kind of gap to the field. I don’t think that. I don’t feel that. I just think that we hit it better than everybody else did today.”

The Oklahoma native has joined William Byron, Daniel Suarez, and Kyle Larson in Victory Lane this season.

Bell led 50 laps before picking up the win.

“I’m just so pleased with the effort at the race shop, all of our guys,” team owner Joe Gibbs said. “Everybody knows how important Phoenix is. So I think there was a great effort. There was a lot of ‘new’ to it, the new package and all that. I couldn’t be happier with the way today went.”

Buildsubmarines.com sponsored driver Chris Buescher finished second. He was the only driver in the Top 3, who did not lead a single lap.

Monster Energy-sponsored driver Ty Gibbs finished third.
