NASCAR XFINITY Series Entry List: Drive for the Cure 300

After a weekend on the high-banked concrete surface at Dover International Speedway, the NASCAR XFINITY Series heads home to Charlotte Motor Speedway. They’ll be running the Drive for the Cure 300 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.

There are 40 cars on the preliminary entry list for the event and 40 spots on the grid. That means a full field for Saturday’s race barring any last-minute changes.

There are seven declared Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regulars scheduled to compete. They include Austin and Ty Dillon for Richard Childress Racing, Reed Sorenson for JD Motorsports, Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones for Joe Gibbs Racing, Ryan Blaney for Team Penske, and Corey LaJoie for JGL Racing.

Sam Hornish Jr., driving the No. 12 Ford for Team Penske, is also making an appearance on his limited schedule. Alex Bowman, next year’s replacement for Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the No. 88 Cup car joins Hornish on the list; he’s running for Chip Ganassi Racing. Another notable part-timer, Ben Kennedy, was initially entered in the No. 96 for GMS Racing but withdrew.

The green flag for the Drive for the Cure 300 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina is scheduled to fly at approximately 3:16 p.m. ET. Television coverage will be provided by NBCSN as the series holds its final playoff race of round one. Twelve drivers will fight to survive and advance as the championship field gets cut down to eight.

Joey Logano, no longer eligible to compete this weekend under NASCAR rules is the race’s defending winner.
