From one mile track to another, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Dover International Speedway this weekend for the Apache Warrior 400 and the final race of the Round of 16 in the NASCAR playoffs.
There are 40 cars on the preliminary entry list, meaning the field will be full barring any entry list changes.
Some notable changes for this week include the addition of the No. 00 entry for StarCom Racing with Derrike Cope. Ross Chastain will also pilot the No. 15 for Premium Motorsports, Corey LaJoie will pilot the No. 23 for BK Racing and Cody Ware will pilot the No. 51 for Rick Ware Racing.
Kevin Harvick, Trevor Bayne, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Corey LaJoie, Landon Cassill, Carl Long and Michael McDowell are currently listed with a “TBD” under sponsorship.
The green flag for the Apache Warrior 400 is scheduled to fly at approximately 2:15 p.m. ET with television coverage on NBCSN. Martin Truex Jr. is the defending winner of the event.
