Entry List: 2015 AAA 400 at Dover

With the first round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup coming to a close, teams enter Dover International Speedway with everything at stake.

NASCAR released the preliminary entry list for the Oct. 4 AAA 400. The list includes 41 entrants, meaning one team will fail to make Sunday’s race.

Travis Kvapil will be the lone driver required to qualify his way into the race on speed due to the position of The Motorsports Group’s No. 30 Chevrolet in series points.

Looking to advance through the first round of his first Chase, Jamie McMurray will come to Dover with sponsorship from Nature Made, a maker of vitamins, dietary supplements, multivitamins and herbal products. McMurray, now in his sixth season with Chip Ganassi Racing, sits 11th in the standings, two points ahead of the Chase bubble.

While he’s yet to find a consistent ride since his leave of Premium Motorsports, Josh Wise will once again be among the field when teams unload on Friday. Wise will pilot the No. 32 Ford for Go Green Racing as he tries to lure teams and sponsors into supporting him next season.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will roar to life on the Monster Mile on Friday, Oct. 2 for practice at 11 a.m. ET, followed by Coors Light Pole qualifying at 3:45 p.m. Et. The field will return on Saturday for two practice sessions at 11 a.m. ET and 2 p.m. ET. Coverage of Sunday’s AAA 400 will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and MRN.
