41 cars are entered for this weekend’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, meaning one car will not qualify for the race. There are a few changes this week to the entry list.
Joe Nemechek will be back behind the wheel of the No. 15 for JD Motorsports after Garrett Smithley drove it last weekend at Atlanta. Nemechek drove the same car to a 23rd-place finish in the season opener at Daytona.
Two notable Cup stars will make their season debuts: Kyle Busch in the No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing and Ryan Blaney in the No. 22 for Team Penske. Busch will be shooting for his 92nd career victory this weekend, while Blaney will be looking for his seventh.
Austin Cindric will be in the No. 60 yet again for Roush Fenway Racing. Cindric will be rotating between Team Penske and Roush Fenway all season as he looks to run for the championship. He last drove the No. 60 at Daytona but unfortunately was caught up in a wreck on lap 10.
Daytona 500 winner Austin Dillon will drive the No. 3 for Richard Childress Racing after younger brother Ty drove it to a 13th-place finish last weekend at Atlanta.
Practice for the weekend begins Friday, March 2 at 12:05 p.m. est. The race takes place on Saturday, March 3 at 4 p.m. ET with coverage on Fox Sports 1.
