Kyle Busch celebrated one championship already this weekend when driver Christopher Bell captured the NASCAR Truck Series championship.

Youth has been served once more in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Bell finished second place in the Ford EcoBoost 200, almost 13 seconds ahead of third-place Johnny Sauter to clinch the crown. Bell won five races this season driving a Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports, leading the series in almost every statistical category.

Briscoe won the pole for the Ford EcoBoost 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway Friday afternoon. He drives for Kyle Busch Motorsports, and Busch is racing Sunday for the Cup championship. Sauter announced a contract extension earlier Friday to drive for GMS Racing, the team he won the title with a year ago. BKR fields trucks for Briscoe and Cindric. Only Bell, Sauter, Cindric and Crafton were racing for the title in a winner-take-all format. He'll start tonight's championship race 13th.

Bell finished this season with five wins, and series highs in both top fives (15) and top 10s (21).

Bell will climb the NASCAR national series ladder in 2018 as he makes the move to the NASCAR XFINITY Series with Joe Gibbs Racing.

Toyota won its record-extended 10th Manufacturers Championship, and fifth in a row.

Three of the four Championship 4 drivers didn't qualify as well as they might have liked.
