The XFINITY Series begins its summer stretch this weekend at Daytona International Speedway with the Subway Firecracker 25o.
According to the original entry list posted on Monday, there are 45 cars entered, meaning five will go home, barring any entry list updates.
John Wes Townley will attempt to qualify for his third XFINITY Series race of the season on Friday. He has competed in both restrictor plate tracks so far this season with his best result of 17th coming in the season opening race at Daytona.
Matt Tifft currently returns behind the wheel of the No. 18 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing after sitting out the Iowa Speedway race due to a back injury. In his absence, Sam Hornish Jr. captured the victory last weekend. Since Tifft did not run last weekend, however, it is possible another driver may be behind the wheel come Friday.
Chase Elliott will attempt what is planned to be his final XFINITY Series start of the season in the Subway Firecracker 250. He will be behind the wheel of the No. 88 Armour Sandwich Creations Chevrolet for JR Motorsports and will look to sweep both XFINITY Series races at Daytona this season.
Race weekend begins on Thursday with two practice sessions, the first beginning at 2 p.m. and final at 4 p.m. (all times ET). Qualifying will take place on Friday at 2:10 p.m. ahead of the Subway Firecracker 250 that night at 7:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.
