TJ Bell made two attempts in 2015, but only qualified for one of those races. He finished 37th in the Bojangles’ Southern 500 after taking a provisional in the No. 98 to start dead last.

Bell did not have a provisional on which to fall back in his first attempt and failed to make the show at Watkins Glen International. Still, diehard fans that had him on their roster at Darlington picked up a few points and it allowed them to stretch the top of their budget.
