With Chris Buescher trying to extend his championship lead, the NASCAR Xfinity Series is set to add another late chapter to the 2015 story in Kansas.
NASCAR released the preliminary entry list for the Oct. 17 Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway. The list includes 41 teams, meaning one team will fail to make the race.
Fresh off of a season sweep at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Austin Dillon will return to the No. 33 for Richard Childress Racing. Dillon will join NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regulars Matt Kenseth (No. 20), Joey Logano (No. 22), JJ Yeley (No. 28), Kyle Busch (No. 54) and Kevin Harvick (No. 88) as the stars look to gain experience for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400.
For just the second time in his young career, Mason Mingus will join the NXS field at Kansas. Mingus will pilot the No. 97 for Obaika Racing in the 300-mile event.
One week after marrying Kyle Busch Motorsports crew chief Eddie Troconis, Jennifer Jo Cobb will make her return to the NXS, driving the No. 10. Other entrants for the event include Derek White in the No. 13, Stanton Barrett in the No. 17 and Mario Gosselin in the No. 92.
The Xfinity Series will return to action on the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway on Friday, Oct. 16 for two practice sessions at 2:30 p.m. ET and 4:30 p.m. ET. The field will then return on Saturday for Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 12:45 p.m. ET. Coverage for the Kansas Lottery 300 will begin at 4 p.m. ET on NBCSN and MRN.
