February 2020 was a big month for Christopher Bell. On February 2, Bell married longtime girlfriend Morgan Kemenah, and, just two weeks later, he made his NASCAR Cup Series debut, driving the No. 95 Toyota for Leavine Family Racing. He ended up finishing 21st at the Daytona 500, his first official Cup race, and went on to finish 20th in the Cup standings.
It hasn't taken long for the now 28-year-old Bell to find his footing in NASCAR's highest level. In 2021, Bell moved over Joe Gibbs Racing and made his first playoff run in the No. 20 Toyota, ultimately finishing 12th in the standings. The Norman, Oklahoma native had his best season in 2022 and finished third in the points standings, winning three races and racking up an additional eight top-five finishes. Bell carried that positive momentum into the 2023 season, and after finishing third in the Atlanta race, he topped the Cup Series power rankings (Bell also finished third at the Daytona 500, fifth at Las Vegas, and sixth at Phoenix).
Things are looking pretty great for Christopher Bell, but just like every young driver, he's had to fight his way to the top. Through the ups and downs of his NASCAR career, Bell has had that special person in his corner supporting him along the way: his wife Morgan.
Getting to Know Morgan Kemenah
Like a good number of NASCAR wives and girlfriends, Morgan Kemenah comes from a big racing family. Morgan's father Brian Kemenah has been a sprint car crew chief for quite some time, and in January 2023, Bell Kemenah Racing was officially launched, with Christopher Bell and his father-in-law Brian joining forces as co-owners of the open-wheel team. Brian spent the majority of his career with his brother (and Morgan's uncle) Chad Kemenah, an accomplished Sprint Car racer who's competed in the All Star Circuit of Champions and the World of Outlaws. Clearly, Christopher picked the right family to hitch his wagon to.
On December 21, 2018, after four-and-a-half years of dating, Christopher and Morgan officially got engaged, just five days after Christopher's birthday. The announcement came about a month after Bell's first full-time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, during which he finished fourth in the points standings. In 2019, the 2017 Craftsman Truck Series champion finished third in the Xfinity points standings. On February 2, 2020, Christopher and Morgan tied the knot.
