One of the biggest weekends of the year for NASCAR goes down in Darlington, South Carolina, and in Canada this week.

NASCAR’s Throwback Weekend takes place at Darlington Raceway with the Cup Series’ Southern 500 and the Xfinity Series VFW Sports Clips Help a Hero 200.

The Camping World Truck Series does its part with its race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.

Here are the preliminary entry lists for all three races.

Cup - 68th Southern 500

A full field of 40 cars are entered into the race.

If the number doesn’t change it will be the 10th race out of 25 this year to have a 40-car field.

There is no driver attached to the No. 51 owned by Rick Ware Racing.

Last year Martin Truex Jr. led 28 laps, including the final 16, on the way to winning over Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson. Harvick led a race-high 214 laps.

Xfinity - VFW Sports Clips Help a Hero 200

There are 41 cars on the preliminary entry list, meaning one car will fail to qualify for the race.

Six Cup regulars are entered: Kevin Harvick, Ty and Austin Dillon, Joey Logano, Erik Jones and Denny Hamlin.

Last year Elliott Sadler fended off Hamlin to lead the final 36 laps and earn his first NASCAR win at the track “Too Tough To Tame.”
