T.J. Bell Joins CMI Motorsports


MOORESVILLE, N.C. – CMI Motorsports has announced the addition of T.J. Bell to the team’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver lineup.

Bell will make his team debut in the No. 49 CMI Properties/Springrates Chevrolet Silverado May 26 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“We are excited to announce T.J. [Bell] is coming on board to run the CMI Properties / Springrates Chevy at Charlotte and Atlanta,” said CMI Motorsports owner Ray Ciccarelli.

“With all the changes going on, we wanted to have someone in our truck that has a ton of experience at both tracks. Experience will be crucial with not having any practice or qualifying. T.J. brings that experience and the feedback from him will help us get better.”

Bell joins CMI Motorsports with an extensive amount of experience in the Truck Series during the last 15 years. In 118 previous starts, Bell has one top-five and 13 top-10 finishes. In 2019 he made three starts, with a best finish of 26th coming twice at Kansas Speedway and Pocono Raceway.

“I’m excited to be back in a truck and I look forward to running for CMI,” said Bell. “I hope we get to put on a great show for the fans at home. We will definitely miss them being at the track and I hope everyone is staying safe.”
