After competing at the home track of NASCAR at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the NASCAR Xfinity Series travels for a standalone race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Forty-two drivers are entered, but there will not be qualifying for this event, so two drivers will not compete in this race.
The No. 13 MBM Motorsports entry, entered with David Starr, and the No. 77 Bassett Racing Chevrolet should be the two entries that fail to make the race.
Driving the No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet will be Miguel Paludo. Paludo will make his third start of this season and fifth career Xfinity Series start.
Ty Gibbs will drive the No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota after winning the Charlotte race for his second career Xfinity Series victory. He’ll compete in double-duty as he’ll compete in the ARCA Menards Series race at Mid-Ohio the previous day.
Andy Lally will drive the No. 23 Our Motorsports Chevrolet. Lally has made 15 career starts, with three top fives and seven top 10 finishes.
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie Kris Wright will drive the No. 26 Sam Hunt Racing Toyota for his third career Xfinity Series start.
The B&L Transport 170 will take place on Saturday, June 5 at 1 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by FOX Sports 1.
