CONCORD, N.C. – After only a handful of races behind the wheel of the No. 83 sprint car for CH Motorsports, Christopher Bell has decided to leave the team.
Bell, the 2013 Honda USAC National Dirt Midget Series champion, confirmed he had left the team when reached by phone Monday afternoon. He declined to comment when asked why he had decided to leave the team.
The Oklahoma driver did say he still plans to contest the Honda USAC National Midget Series and USAC Silver Crown Series schedules in 2014. He’ll race the midget schedule with Keith Kunz Motorsports and the Silver Crown slate with Team 6R.
Bell replaced Tim Shaffer in the No. 83 entry owned by Aaron Call and Janet Holbrook in 2014. Tim Shaffer, who won four-straight UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions titles and the 2010 Knoxville Nationals, parted ways with the team after the 2013 season.
