Christopher Bell wins World Midget 50 Lapper in New Zealand
Christopher Bell beat out Michael Pickens Saturday in the World Midget 50 Lapper at Western Springs Speedway in New Zealand.
Bell started first but quickly lost the lead to Pickens.
Bell overtook Pickens for the lead on Lap 20 and led the rest of the way.
Kyle Larson, who won a 39-lap feature two nights ago over Bell, wrecked on Lap 43 and did not finish.
Saturday’s race concluded a stretch of six midget races in 11 nights in New Zealand. In that span Bell also won two sprint races in addition to Saturday’s win. Larson won two midget races.
