Race Weekend Central

Entry List: Boyd Gaming 300

The NASCAR XFINITY Series will head West to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend for the third race of the NXS season, the Boyd Gaming 300.

Last season’s race featured five Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regulars, and Mr. XFINITY Series himself, Kyle Busch, dominated the race last season, leading a whopping 199 of the 200 laps run around the 1.5-mile tri-oval.

This season, eight Cup regulars (Busch, Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Aric Almirola, Daniel Suarez and Joey Logano) will make up the 39-car field (barring any entry list changes), along with the usual series regulars as well as part-timers.

NASCAR announced earlier in the week that the No. 20 car for Joe Gibbs Racing had its splitter structure incorrectly mounted. That car was driven by Denny Hamlin at Atlanta and finished 20th. The penalty is a loss of a pit stall selection. New for the 2017 season, XFINITY teams select pit stalls for the the next race after qualifying for the race they are at that week.

His JGR teammate, Busch, won the Rinnai 250 but the No. 18 car failed post-race inspection. Penalties for that team are expected to be announced later in the week.

The Boyd Gaming 300 will take place on Saturday, March 11, with the green flag flying just past 4 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1 with radio coverage on PRN as well as SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Maybe this time Kyle can win and pass post-“race” inspection. It’s like A-Rod using steroids to hit a home run in AAA ball. Really? He has to cheat to do that?


That 10 Race Limit isn’t going to make any difference THE CUP DRIVERS RUIN THE XFINITY SERIES
