After a week off, the NASCAR XFINITY Series rolls into Texas Motor Speedway this weekend (Nov. 3) for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. The event is the middle race in the third round of the XFINITY Series playoffs.
40 teams are entered this week, which means all drivers will make the race, barring any entry list changes.
Ray Black Jr. will return to the seat of the No. 8 for BJ McLeod Motorsports. Black has made nine starts this season, eight of which have come for McLeod’s team.
Owner-driver Carl Long will strap behind the wheel of his No. 66 for MBM Motorsports.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2, at 4:30 p.m. ET with TV coverage on NBC.
