Race Weekend Central

Entry List: 2015 Owens Corning AttiCat 300 at Chicagoland

NASCAR released the entry list for the June 20 Owens Corning AttiCat 300 at Chicagoland Speedway earlier today (June 15). The list includes 38 drivers, meaning all will make the race.

With the Sprint Cup Series taking a week off, only one Cup driver is listed among the entrants. Austin Dillon will pilot the No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. The 2013 NXS champion has two wins in 2015, coming at Las Vegas and Charlotte.

The two most interesting names on the entry list will come from the Joe Gibbs Racing stable. Ross Kenseth, son of 2003 NSCS champion Matt Kenseth, will make his NXS debut for the team, driving the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota often piloted by his father. Kenseth, 22, has driven late models for much of his life, with his biggest win coming in the 2012 All-American 400 at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. The Little Chute, Wisconsin native scored his first ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards victory last weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

JGR teammate Erik Jones will be the lone driver to pull double duty this weekend, driving the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota in Chicago less than 24 hours after competing in the No. 4 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports in a Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway.

Ryan Blaney will return to the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford for Team Penske. Blaney, 22, picked up one win each in 2013 and 2014, but is still looking for his first triumph of 2015.

Ben Rhodes will make his second career start for JR Motorsports, driving the No. 88 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet. Rhodes previously finished seventh in the May 7 race at Iowa Speedway.

Brennan Poole will pilot the No. 42 DC Solar Chevrolet for Scott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi.

The No. 55 Viva Motorsports team was on the initial entry list with driver Mike Harmon, but has since been removed. Harmon is currently not entered.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series will roar to life a Chicagoland Speedway on Friday, June 19, for two practice sessions, before returning on June 20 for Coors Light Pole Qualifying (5:15 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 2). Coverage for the Owens Corning AttiCat 300 will begin at 9:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
