The Chaparral Motorsports|Precision Concepts|Kawasaki Team Green is pleased with Zach Bell’s performances to start the year. With a few race wins and podiums under his belt, Zach’s work ethic and talent is sure to take him far in 2020.
Zach currently sits just outside the championship lead in the NGPC Series after winning the first two rounds and suffering a DNF at round three. In the WORCS championship chase, Zach is working his way up after a rough start to the series. He’s shown he has the speed and talent to win in both the NGPC and WORCS championships and we look forward to a successful finish to the year.
