ROSSBURG, OH — July 14, 2017 — Christopher Bell took the lead from Brad Sweet in turn three and then held off a surging Donny Schatz on a restart with nine laps to go to win the Knight Before the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. Bell, who lined up for the 30-lap main event in third, engaged in a thrilling battle with Brian Brown in the opening laps before catching and then passing Brad Sweet in lapped traffic. Schatz surged in the middle of the race as the track continued to slick off and put his best towards Bell, but fell 0.591 seconds short of the victory. Brad Sweet earned his second straight podium finish with a third-place result while Ian Madsen and Brown rounded out the podium finishers.
