For only the third time this season, one car will go home after qualifying for the Bojangles Southern 500 this weekend at Darlington Raceway.

Landon Cassill is driving the No. 00 this weekend for StarCom Racing, while Matt Kenseth returns to the No. 6 of Roush Fenway Racing. Reed Sorenson is driving the No. 7 for Premium Motorsports.

Joey Gase is driving the third Front Row Motorsports-chartered car, still listed as the BK Racing No. 23 Toyota.

BJ McLeod is driving the No. 51 for Rick Ware Racing, and the team’s part-time No. 52 is also entered, though with driver TBA.

Timmy Hill will pilot the No. 66 for Motorsports Business Management, as a Toyota this week,

Finally, Jeffrey Earnhardt is behind the wheel of the No. 96 Toyota for Gaunt Brothers Racing, and Derrike Cope is driving the No. 99 StarCom entry.

Ok Wesley. How about this well told story. Last race I ever flew to was Darlington. Great track, great people. After race , Kyle pushes Kevin’s empty car out of the way on pit road before Richard Childress can take off his wrist watch and teach him a lesson. Ended up in a bar in Florence SC laughing about it with many other NASCAR fans. Missed my flight home the next day. What good times!


Derrike Cope????? Again? That means a car that should be in the event won’t be. So much for quality.
