Entry List: Auto Club 400

NASCAR Cup Series drivers continue their West Coast swing with a visit to Auto Club Speedway, where the division will hold its third race of 2020 this Sunday, March 2.

38 cars will attempt the race, meaning all will make the field, barring any changes to the entry list.

Joey Logano looks to record back-to-back wins after a victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last week, while Wood Brothers Racing’s Matt DiBenedetto aims to have another strong run after a runner-up finish there.

William Byron will run a tribute paint scheme to the late Kobe Bryant in his Hendrick Motorsports No. 24, and Ryan Blaney will apparently do the same with sponsor BodyArmor.

Ross Chastain will again substitute for the recovering Ryan Newman in the No. 6 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing, having run well last week but having issues late and finishing 27th.

Reed Sorenson returns to Spire Motorsports’ No. 77 for the second consecutive race, having finished 34th in the entry at Las Vegas.

Rick Ware Racing has a driver lineup identical to last week’s in its three cars – Garrett Smithley in the No. 51, JJ Yeley in the No. 52 and Joey Gase in the team’s No. 53.

AUTO CLUB 400 ENTRY LIST

The 2020 Auto Club 400 field will take the green flag shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 1.
