NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Truck teams will compete this week at Richmond Raceway. NASCAR released the entry lists for Richmond on Tuesday for each series.
This is the final doubleheader weekend of the season for the Xfinity Series. The Cup race is the middle event of the first round of the playoffs. The Truck playoff field will be set after Thursday night’s race.
Here are the preliminary entry lists for Richmond:
Cup – Federated Auto Parts 400 (7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on NBCSN)
Thirty-eight cars are entered for this playoff race.
Xfinity – Go Bowling 250 (7 p.m. ET Friday on NBCSN)
Xfinity – Virginia is for Racing Lovers (2 p.m. ET Saturday on NBCSN)
Kyle Busch is among the 37 entries for Friday night’s Xfinity race. It will be his fifth and final start of the season. NASCAR rules limit Cup drivers to how many races they can compete in the Xfinity and Truck Series and what races they can run.
There are 36 cars entered for the Saturday race. The Saturday race will not have the No. 54 since Busch can’t compete.
Trucks – ToyotaCare 250 (8 p.m. ET Thursday on FS1)
David Ragan and Trevor Bayne are among the 36 entries for this race. Ragan finished 22nd last weekend at Darlington, his first series start since 2006. Bayne finished 27th at Darlington in his first career Truck Series start.
