AND Christopher Bell used a last-lap pass to overtake Michael Pickens and win Sunday's sprint car event at Western Springs Speedway.

Pickens was trapped in traffic in the final laps of the race as Bell closed in. On the final lap Pickens went low in the first corner while Bell took the high side, but coming out of turn two Pickens got trapped behind a slower car.

Bell took the opportunity and dove low under Pickens into turn three, dropping his left-side tires into the infield grass in the process. Bell was able to clear Pickens out of turn four and beat him to the finish line.
