The teams are turning out en masse for the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.
42 cars are currently entered for the Food City 300 on Friday, Aug. 16, meaning four teams will head home after qualifying, barring any entry list changes.
The roster includes the returns of BJ McLeod Motorsports drivers Matt Mills and Vinnie Miller to their usual rides, the Nos. 5 and 78, respectively. The pair adds a teammate in CJ McLaughlin, attempting his second career Xfinity start in the No. 99.
Jeb Burton slides into JR Motorsports’ No. 8 for the weekend, while Joe Graf Jr. moves from Richard Childress Racing’s No. 21 to the affiliated No. 10 with Kaulig Racing.
MBM Motorsports features a few switches, with Tommy Joe Martins driving the No. 13 and Chad Finchum in the No. 66. Meanwhile, the team’s No. 42 is currently listed as the No. 61 on the entry list, with Timmy Hill driving.
Shane Lee and H2 Motorsports return with the No. 28 following a few-race stretch in which the fledgling organization did not enter Xfinity races.
Brandonbilt Motorsports again brings two cars to the track, with Brandon Brown in the No. 86 and Mason Diaz in the No. 68.
XCI Racing returns to the track with its No. 81, this time driven by Erik Jones in his first Xfinity start of 2019.
