Entry List: Federated Auto Parts 400

40 teams are entered for this weekend’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway, the second race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.

A 40-car entry list means all teams will make the show, barring any last-minute changes.

Joey Gase returns to the No. 00 for StarCom Racing. The normal driver of the No. 00, Landon Cassill, will move over to StarCom’s second car, the No. 99.

Matt Kenseth will jump back in the No. 6 for Roush Fenway Racing this weekend, armed with sponsorship backing from Performance Plus Motor Oil.

Alon Day, a veteran on the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series tour, will drive the No. 23 for BK Racing. Day, the first Israeli driver in NASCAR, has one career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start to his credit, which came last year at Sonoma Raceway.

Finally, Cole Custer will make his third start of the season driving the No. 51 for Rick Ware Racing. The team’s second car, the No. 52, is listed as TBA. Jacob Companies will sponsor both efforts.

Ware’s No. 52 joins Starcom’s No. 99, the No. 66 run by Timmy Hill (MBM Motorsports) and Gaunt Brothers Racing’s No. 96 with Jeffrey Earnhardt as the unchartered teams in the field.


The Federated Auto Parts 400 is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22, at 7:30 p.m ET with TV coverage on NBCSN.
