Entry List: Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway

NASCAR released the preliminary entry list for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway today (Monday, May 20). Currently, 40 drivers are entered for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Memorial Day weekend race. Barring any withdrawals, the Coca-Cola 600 will be a full field.

The four drivers who are entered in non-chartered cars are Reed Sorensen, B.J. McLeod, Joey Gase, and Parker Kligerman.

Sorenson will drive the No. 27 Premium Motorsports Chevrolet. He has competed in six NASCAR Cup Series races this season.

McLeod finished last in the Monster Energy Open in the debut race for a third Rick Ware Racing team. He returns to drive the No. 53 Rick Ware Racing Chevrolet at Charlotte.

Gase will drive the No. 66 MBM Motorsports Toyota. He drove the No. 46 MBM Motorsports Toyota in the Monster Energy Open. In an interview with Frontstretch, MBM Motorsports owner Carl Long planned on entering both the No. 46 and the No. 66 in the Coca-Cola 600.

Lastly, Kligerman and Gaunt Brothers Racing return to NASCAR Cup Series competition at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kligerman has competed in five Cup Series races this season, all driving the No. 96 Toyota. He’ll wheel it again in the Coca-Cola 600.

Of the drivers competing for chartered teams, nine drivers are listed without a sponsor. Presumably, that amount will decrease. In some cases, those teams may reveal a patriotic paint scheme to commemorate the holiday weekend.


The Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway will take place on Sunday, May 26 at 6 p.m. ET.
