No, that number isn’t in regards to the former field size for the Sprint Cup Series. It’s the number of trucks entered for this weekend’s Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
With only 32 positions available for the CWTS race this Friday, 11 trucks will go home following qualifying on Friday afternoon.
Reed Sorenson and Cole Whitt are the only drivers on the entry list planning to pull double duty in both the CWTS and Sprint Cup race this weekend. Sorenson will race the No. 63 for MB Motorsports and Whitt will pilot the No. 84 for Jay Robinson.
Also announced on the list is Empire Racing Group’s No. 43 to be driven by Austin Hill. The team is running in conjunction with Richard Petty Motorsports as part of that team’s driver development program.
The CWTS will take to the track on Thursday, Feb. 18 for two practice sessions at 1:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Qualifying will take place on Friday at 4:30 p.m. and the race will follow at 7:30 on Fox Sports 1.
