NASCAR’s national series will make their debuts on the Daytona road course this weekend. The Cup, Xfinity and Truck events will be held without any practice or qualifying.

NASCAR is prohibiting drivers from competing in more than one series this weekend on the Daytona road course in an effort to get extra track time. NASCAR states that is to make the event fair for everyone.

Sunday’s Cup race will be broadcast on NBC.

Here are the preliminary entry lists for the races at the Daytona road course 

Cup – Go Bowling 235 (3 p.m. ET Sunday on NBC)

A native of New Zealand, Bamber has raced on the Daytona road course seven times, earning four podium finishes in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series. Bamber is also a two-time 24 Hours of Le Mans champion (2015 & 2017).

“I’ve dreamed about competing in NASCAR my entire life, so I am so thankful to Richard Childress, KCMG and everyone who has played a role in creating this opportunity for me,” Bamber said in a press release. “I know that RCR has a storied history of cultivating talent and will give me all of the tools I need to succeed. I’m looking forward to the race.”

KC Motorgroup Ltd will also serve as a sponsor of Tyler Reddick in the Cup Series later this year.

“It’s extremely special for KCMG to be aligned with Earl Bamber and Tyler Reddick this year,” Richard Childress said in a press release. “These two up-and-coming drivers have shown talent and promise. I’ve been watching Earl for a number of years, and I’m pleased to have him join RCR’s strong NASCAR Xfinity Series program.”
