February 24, 2014 — CONCORD, N.C. and NORMAN, OK – Al Steinberg Photo — After just a handful of races in 2014 driving the No. 83 sprint car for CH Motorsports, Christopher Bell has elected to part ways with the CH team.
Bell, the 2013 USAC National Midget Series champion, confirmed he had left the team when reached by phone on Monday afternoon. Bell declined to comment on why he decided to leave the team.
The Oklahoma driver added he still plans to race the full Honda USAC National Midget Series and USAC Silver Crown schedules in 2014. Bell will drive 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 for 2014. Shaffer, who won four-consecutive UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions titles and the 2010 Knoxville Nationals with the CH outfit, parted ways with the team after the 2013 season.
