Christopher Bell thinks he’s in “the best position to win the (NASCAR Cup)”

Phoenix – There may not be a clear favorite to win the NASCAR Cup Series, but there is one on the outer limits of many people’s radar who just might be the man to beat.

In the world of ex-champions Joey Logano and Chase Elliott, as well as passionate favorite Ross Chastain after his perilous move in the last race, there is a fourth man who might say, “Hey! Here! I’m in that race too!”

Christopher Bell, 27, with the face of a 14-year-old, races Sunday at Phoenix Raceway in the shadows of Lugano, Elliot and Chastain. But there is one thing you cannot discount.
