Darlington Cup, Xfinity and Truck entry lists
Entry lists have been released for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series races at Darlington Raceway.
Previously celebrated alongside the Southern 500 since 2015, NASCAR Throwback Weekend festivities have moved to this weekend at “The Track Too Tough To Tame.”
This will also be the first weekend with all three NASCAR national series in action since March 20-21 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Cup: Goodyear 400 (3:30 p.m. ET Sunday, FS1)
37 entries are listed for Sunday’s Cup race.
Last year at Darlington, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin split the May races. Harvick won the Southern 500 later in September.
Xfinity: Steakhouse Elite 200 (1 p.m. ET Saturday, FS1)
43 entries are listed for Saturday’s Xfinity race.
Noah Gragson, Talladega winner Jeb Burton, Austin Cindric and AJ Allmendinger will compete for a $100,000 bonus in the third Xfinity Dash 4 Cash race of the season.
Daytona road course winner Ty Gibbs will be back in the No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for his fourth start of the season.
Trucks: LiftKits4Less.com 200 (7:30 p.m. ET Friday, FS1)
40 entries are listed for Friday’s Truck race, with three excluded by points.
