0 Comments

Entry lists have been released for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series races at Talladega Superspeedway.

The Xfinity Series returns after a one-week break. The Camping World Truck Series is off this week after John Hunter Nemechek’s win on Saturday at Richmond.

Cup: Geico 500 (2 p.m. ET Sunday, FOX)

40 entries are listed for Sunday’s race.

Regular season points leader Denny Hamlin won in the most recent race at Talladega during the Cup playoffs last fall.

Xfinity Series regular Harrison Burton will make his Cup debut in the No. 96 Gaunt Brothers Racing Toyota.

JJ Yeley will drive the No. 15 for Rick Ware Racing. Jennifer Jo Cobb was to have made her Cup debut in that car, but NASCAR did not approve her to run at Talladega.
