The Cup Series competes in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, Xfinity teams gear up for the OneMain Financial 200 and the Truck Series starts things with off with the Bar Harbor 200.

Here are the preliminary entry lists for each race.

There are 39 cars on the entry list for this race.

The final blank driver entry was filled Wednesday when Richard Petty Motorsports announced Regan Smith will once again be behind the wheel of the No. 43 Ford, substituting for the injured Aric Almirola. This will be the third race that Smith has driven for Almirola, having also piloted the No. 43 in the All-Star Race and the Coca-Cola 600.

Ross Chastain, a Xfinity Series regular, will make his Cup Series debut driving the No. 15 Chevrolet for Premium Motorsports.

Ryan Sieg will also make his Cup debut driving the No. 83 for BK Racing.

In this race last year, Matt Kenseth won after a battle with Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott in the closing laps. Last fall, Martin Truex Jr. led 187 laps on the way to winning the Dover playoff race. It was his third win in six races.
