Entry List: 2021 EchoPark Automotive 500

With four drivers being eliminated following the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL, the Round of 8 is set to commence with the EchoPark Automotive 500 at Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Cup Series.

Eight drivers will look to lock their spot in the championship finale at Phoenix Raceway.

Thirty-nine cars are set to take the green this weekend, meaning all will qualify, barring any entry list changes.

Timmy Hill is set to make his 11th start on the campaign for MBM Motorsports. Instead of driving the No. 66 like he has in his previous 10 starts, Hill will pilot the No. 13 Broken Bow Luxury Cabins Toyota.

Garrett Smithley will drive the No. 15 Ford for Rick Ware Racing this weekend. In what will be his 25th start of the season, it will be Smithley’s second behind the wheel of the No. 15.

After not appearing at the Charlotte ROVAL, Joey Gase is back with Rick Ware Racing in the No. 53 Chevrolet for his 13th start of the year.

In MBM Motorsports’s No. 66 Connectus Ford this week is David Starr. Starr will make his first start since Bristol Motor Speedway last month and only his fifth of the year.
