“It’s all been a complete surprise. A month ago, they were telling me I was going to have a couple of Truck races in 2016 and more Super Late Model races and go dirt racing again. Then I got a phone call: ‘You’re going full time, get ready.’” — Christopher Bell, Driver of the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Christopher Bell (No. 54) led John Wes Townley (No. 05) during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Win your fi rst race, talk to the whole family. Joe Nemechek (right) held the phone for John Hunter Nemechek as they celebrated his fi rst NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory at Chicagoland Speedway. “I would have run out of gas if it hadn’t been for spotter Terry Cook,” Townley said after the race. “I took care of this thing truck tonight and it took care of me. This is amazing, awesome.” Nemechek’s 2015 campaign has set him up for a solid 2016. After missing fi ve of the fi rst seven races because of his age, Nemechek started the fi nal 16 races of the year. He had one victory, eight top fi ves and 10 top 10s. He fi nished the season on an impressive run, posting an average fi nish of fi ve in the fi nal 10 races, including one victory and three runner-up fi nishes. His fi rst and only victory of the season came at Chicagoland Speedway. And, he led the two most important laps in the race — the last two. Nemechek outlasted a number of drivers that ran out of fuel, and he passed Kyle Larson with two laps remaining to win the race.
