Kansas Speedway will host its first of two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races in 2019 with a night race on Saturday, May 11.
40 cars are scheduled to qualify, meaning every driver will make the race, barring any entry list changes.
Most of the teams’ lineups are still the same as in previous weeks, but a few additional drivers will make an appearance on the track Saturday.
Tyler Reddick is back in Richard Childress Racing’s No. 31 for the first time since Daytona International Speedway. Reddick finished 27th in the Daytona 500 after a crash ended his day.
MBM Motorsports will field two cars for the first time in its Cup history, with the Nos. 46 and 66 scheduled to start. Timmy Hill is behind the wheel of the No. 66 for the third time in 2019, while Joey Gase will make his fifth Cup Series start of 2019, but his first in the No. 46.
Rick Ware Racing fields Jeb Burton and Bayley Currey in their two entries, both drivers’ first starts since Richmond Raceway. Burton will get behind the wheel of the No. 51, while Currey will drive the No. 52.
The 2019 Digital Ally 400 will air on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. ET
