NASCAR Entry List: DC Solar 300

39 teams are entered for this weekend’s inaugural DC Solar 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the NASCAR XFINITY Series. It will be the first time the 1.5-mile speedway has held a second race for the sport’s second-tier division.

A 39-car entry list means that the series will have the first short field of the season, barring any late entry list additions. Additionally, this event is the last race before the start of the NASCAR XFINITY Series playoffs.

There are a couple of new teams and driver changes to note. Among part-time efforts, Max Tullman will make his second career XFINITY start behind the wheel of the No. 26. Shane Lee will drive the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet, continuing his limited schedule.

Among full-time teams, Landon Cassill will jump behind the wheel of the No. 4 for JD Motorsports. Cassill replaces Ross Chastain, who will drive the No. 42 for Chip Ganassi Racing. Chastain is making his second of three starts for CGR as he seeks to lock up a playoff spot.

Ray Black Jr. returns to the No. 8 BJ McLeod Motorsports while Austin Cindric will pilot the No. 22 for Team Penske. Cindric is on the postseason bubble, sitting 57 points ahead of Michael Annett for the final spot.

Spencer Gallagher returns to drive the No. 23 for GMS. The team’s regular driver earlier in the season, Gallagher has driven a limited schedule since a suspension for violating the sport’s drug policy.

Finally, after missing the race last week, Timmy Hill will get back behind the wheel of the No. 66.

DC SOLAR 300 FULL ENTRY LIST

The DC Solar 300 is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 at 5:00 p.m. ET with TV coverage on NBCSN.
