FORT WORTH, Texas — Christopher Bell has been on a tear Saturday night in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 20 Toyota Supra has now led 69 laps, and after Tyler Reddick slapped the wall in the middle portion of the Stage, Bell became the clear Stage-favorite.
Justin Allgaier, who started from the rear of the field after an engine change, has rebounded to second in Stage 2. Allgaier is still searching for his first win of 2019.
Tyler Reddick, John Hunter Nemechek and Chase Briscoe were third through fifth.
Noah Gragson, who suffered damage in an incident with Bobby Dale Earnhardt earlier in the race, was sixth in Stage 2.
Austin Cindric, Cole Custer, Brandon Jones and Jeb Burton rounded out the top-10 in the Stage.
Michael Annett was the lone Playoff contender who finished outside the top-10, as he was 13th.
