The NASCAR Xfinity Series returns from its NASCAR COVID-19 break to Darlington Raceway this weekend. The Darlington 200 starts Tuesday (May 19) at 8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
NASCAR has temporarily increased the maximum number of cars that can compete in the Xfinity and Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series to 40. Since 39 cars are currently entered, all will race, barring any last-minute changes.
Cup Series regular Kyle Busch will run the race, driving Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 54 Toyota. Busch will be busy as he plans to compete in all seven races in 11 days at Darlington and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Additionally, 2018 Truck Series champion Brett Moffitt continues to compete for Our Motorsports. NASCAR and doctors cleared Moffitt to race after he recovered from motocross accident injuries suffered in March.
Sam Hunt Racing returns to Xfinity Series competition after temporarily suspending operations. Colin Garrett will drive the No. 26 car for the team with sponsorship from Rosie Network.
Lastly, Mason Massey will pilot the No. 99 for BJ McLeod Motorsports. Sponsorship will come from Gerber Collision & Glass.
The Darlington 200 is set to get underway on Tuesday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports 1.
