How many times did Larson have Silva for those Knoxville runs?



Most, if not all. That's a great point. When Bell was in the TSR ride though I truely expected more. Same goes with Tony at Knoxville though too. Tony seems better when it's a smaller track or elbows up type driving conditions.

I pretty much agree on all of that. Bell is better in a midget, Larson better all around

Bell is a great driver, but not a huge amount of experience in winged sprint car. I doubt if he can challenge Donny, but I think he'll win some races

Bell in Swindell car for Chili Bowl? I would LOVE to see that!!!!! Could stop the Kunz Armada, plenty of drama in that situation....



One could only hope the Kunz armada would get beat just once. I don't think we will see that for a good number of years to come.

My eyeballs. I like the way he drives a car better. The kid is GOOD



He is good, but Larson is great in a sprint car. I’d take Bell in a midget, but Larson has a much better record in sprint cars.

Larson w/Silva is great in a sprint car. He seemed a bit lost in FL without Silva. Let's see how that continues to go.  As for the Swindell #39, that car was fast with Bayston in it. Bayston isn't Bell as we all know. With Bell in the 39 of course it's a different story. Bell is a hell of a driver and imo on dirt most things being equal is everything Larson is. As Bell gets more experience with a wing overhead, I think he'll improve even more and very quickly.

Did Bell do well on that swing? I honestly don't remember it. I don't think it has anything to do with the other either. He would be a fool to leave Kunz.



" He would be a fool to leave Kunz".... that makes sense, but who knows. IMHO, you have to be pretty crazy to drive a sprint car at all....

Maybe he likes a challenge?

So now all of a sudden some folks are discounting the Swindell success at the Chili Bowl? They must be kidding, right? Nine wins between father and son.....Kevin with four in a row 2010-2013....then second to Clausen in 2014 and second to Abreu in 2015, and unable to compete after the Nationals in 2015 because of his injury. IMHO Kevin owned the Chili Bowl! Who wouldn't take his ride?!

They had amazing success. I don't think I am discounting their success. It just looks likes EVERYONE lost a step, maybe two, to the Kunz cars at the Chili Bowl.

Who wouldn't take the ride? The guy who has won 3 in a row with Kunz.

I'm not discounting Swindell success at all, in fact i'm a fan

I was just agreeing with IaDirt that Bell & Kunz has been a terrific winning combo

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
