Entry List: Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Makes Return to XFINITY Series in Ticket Galaxy 200

The NASCAR XFINITY Series heads to Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday for an elimination race in the Chase for the Championship as the Championship 4 will be decided.

As of Monday, there are 42 cars entered, meaning two will not make the race, barring any entry list updates.

Two-time XFINITY Series champion Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. will attempt to qualify for the Ticket Galaxy 200 for Roush Fenway Racing in the No. 60 car. He last competed in the series in 2013 at Texas where he finished 17th. In his last three series starts at Phoenix, he captured three consecutive top-5 finishes.

Alex Bowman will be behind the wheel of the No. 88 for JR Motorsports on Saturday. He has finished inside the top 10 in all seven of his XFINITY Series starts this season and will look to continue the streak at Phoenix. His last series start at the track came for JRM in 2014, when he finished 17th.

Race weekend begins on Friday with two practice sessions, the first at 12:30 p.m. and final at 4:30 p.m. (all times ET). Qualifying will take place at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday followed by the race at 7 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.

There are seven Sprint Cup Series drivers entered in the race: Austin Dillon, Matt DiBenedetto, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Alex Bowman, and Aric Almirola.
Kyle Busch is the defending winner of the event. Busch also won this year’s spring race at Phoenix.

The race is the final event in the Round of 8. No Xfinity Chase Driver has clinched a spot in the Championship 4 at Homestead and how is a Xfinity Chase or Regular supposed to win with that many Cup Drivers in the race.
