Entry List: 2015 Drive to Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol

When the NASCAR Xfinity Series returns to action this Saturday, series regulars may find it difficult to reach victory lane.

NASCAR released the entry list for the April 18 Drive to Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway earlier today (April 13). The list includes 39 drivers, meaning that everyone will make Saturday’s race.

Typical of recent races, a notable number of Sprint Cup Series veterans are on the list. 2013 champion Austin Dillon returns to the No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet. Kevin Harvick once again wheels the No. 88 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet for JR Motorsports. Denny Hamlin will continue replacing the injured Kyle Busch, driving the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota.

Along with Cup veterans, a few Camping World Truck Series drivers will try to take home a victory. Erik Jones will be back in the No. 20 GameStop Toyota after winning last week at Texas. He’ll be joined by teammate Daniel Suarez in the No. 18 ARRIS Toyota.

Team Penske developmental driver Ryan Blaney will return to action at Bristol, driving the team’s No. 22 Discount Tire Ford. The last time the Xfinity Series took to the .533-mile Tennessee track, Blaney found himself in victory lane.

Brennan Poole will return to the No. 42 DC Solar Chevrolet for HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi. The rookie finished 13th at Texas.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series will take to the “Last Great Colosseum” starting on Friday (April 17) for two practice sessions before returning on Saturday for Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 9:45 a.m. ET. Coverage of the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300 will begin at 1:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
