car working well there,” Bellm said of the Kannady Racing
Engines/Heidbreder Foundation Service entry.

we can keep it going.”

going aboard the Christian County Collision Repair/Bybee Lawn
“We got a little
tight on the cushion, I bobbled up there and let Chance (Morton)
get by,” Bellm recalls.
Bellm tried to
battle back. “I threw a couple of slidejobs,
I really overdrove it a little bit and tapped the wall getting
off of four,” Bellm says.
Battling back and
forth among the top five, Bellm ultimately settled for fourth at
“I probably had a
second or third place car,” Bellm says. “I
tried to make it a winning car and cost myself a position or

top-five run in his last 12 outings.

happy with the way the night went,” Bellm sums up.
