NASCAR Nation was buzzing Sunday and into Monday about the results of the 48th annual Snowball Derby Super Late Model Race.

Specifically, the chatter was regarding race winner Chase Elliott and the driver who crossed the start/finish line first. The two were not the same.

Christopher Bell, who won at Eldora in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in July, took the checkered flag in his Kyle Busch-owned entry before being disqualified less than an hour later for failing post-race technical inspection. That led to Elliott, who finished second to Bell, being declared the official winner — Bell was formally scored 37th, last in the field.
