This weekend, the NASCAR XFINITY Series heads north from Pocono Raceway to Michigan International Speedway for the Michigan 250, the 13th race of the 33-race season.
There are 40 cars on the preliminary entry list for the 250-mile event, meaning no drivers will fail to qualify, barring any entry list changes.
Notable changes for this week include the subtraction of the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing entry, formerly driven by Darrell Wallace Jr. RFR announced last week that due to a lack of sponsorship, the team’s last scheduled race would be at Pocono.
Cale Conley will drive the No. 24 Toyota, Tyler Reddick will pilot the No. 42 Chevrolet, Tommy Joe Martins will drive the No. 78 Toyota, Brandon Brown will drive the No. 90 Chevrolet and Josh Williams will pilot the No. 92 Chevrolet in the latter car’s first start of 2017.
There are five Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers in the field: Paul Menard (No. 2), Ty Dillon (No. 3), Kyle Busch (No. 18), Denny Hamlin (No. 20) and Brad Keselowski (No. 22). Keselowski won last weekend’s NXS event at Pocono and will look to go back-to-back at MIS.
The green flag is scheduled to fly at approximately 1:48 p.m. ET from the 2-mile asphalt oval in Brooklyn, Michigan, on Saturday, June 17, with television coverage on FOX Sports 1. Daniel Suarez is the defending winner of the event.
