This gives him additional motivation and the desire to succeed. “Well, I mean, I don’t think that it means anything for me. I certainly thrive on pressure and I love it. I live for those type of moments. That’s why last week hurt so bad because I live for those moments.

Whenever you have an opportunity to be great…It didn’t work last week [at Las Vegas], and that really, really hurt me”. - Bell said. Times like these, when Bell demonstrates his capabilities, are precisely what he desires.

Christopher Bell and Kevin Harvick

Many in the press have drawn comparisons between "The Closer" (Kevin Harvick) and Christopher Bell. However, despite Christopher's immense respect for Harvick and his impressive career, he doesn't appear to appreciate such comparisons.

His primary focus remains on creating success in his own right. “I don’t know. I mean, Harvick is obviously one of the greatest to ever do it. I’m a far stretch from that. I am proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish I guess is the right way to say it.

But I don’t think that anybody will be The Closer. That’s Kevin’s motto, that’s what he did. Hopefully, I’m Christopher Bell”. Source: on3.com
