HAUBSTADT, Ind. – Christopher Bell’s fifth-career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory, earned Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway, made plenty of headlines.
After all, he passed current Outlaw points leader Brad Sweet for the score – a feat in itself – but making the night even more notable was that it was Bell’s first win as an owner/driver against The Greatest Show on Dirt – working with friend and co-owner Chad Boat.
That made for a memorable victory lane celebration, as well as an influx of social media congratulations throughout the night and into the morning.
We’ve compiled several of those messages below, as many of Bell’s rivals, friends and even media members chimed in to offer their appreciation for the show that Bell put on.

Wow, @CBellRacing dropped in and beat the Outlaws in his own stuff. How about that? Meanwhile, Sweet extends his points lead with a P5 while Schatz finishes P13.

Before it was all said and done, Bell offered his own reaction on social media as well.
In case you were wondering, it was pretty amped up.
