The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series makes their first and only trip of the season to Watkins Glen International this weekend for the 2019 Go Bowling at the Glen.
The initial entry list has 37 competitors trying to tackle the challenging road course in upstate New York. With 40 spots on the grid, that means all drivers will qualify, barring any entry list changes.
The sport’s lesser-funded teams have switched it up a little bit for this weekend. Quin Houff will switch over to the No. 15 car for Premium Motorsports, instead of the No. 77 of Spire Motorsports, which will be piloted by Reed Sorenson. This will be Sorenson’s 13th start of the season, the second with Spire Motorsports.
Parker Kligerman will also make an appearance in the Cup Series for the ninth time this year, driving the No. 96 for Gaunt Brothers Racing.
Rick Ware Racing’s drivers, No. 51 and the No. 52, are listed as TBA, though Cody Ware tweeted Monday that he’d be driving the race.
The 34th Annual Go Bowling at the Glen will get underway Sunday, Aug. 4 at 3 p.m. ET. TV coverage will be provided by NBCSN.
