Entry List: 2020 Go Bowling 250 and Virginia is for Racing Lovers 250 at Richmond

The NASCAR Xfinity Series embarks on a doubleheader schedule for their stint at Richmond Raceway this weekend, as they make up the cancelled spring date with two races in two days. The Go Bowling 250 is set for Friday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m., while the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 250 will run less than 24 hours later on Saturday, Sept. 12 at 2 p.m.

There are 37 cars are on the entry list for Friday’s event, meaning all will make the field for the race. Kyle Busch‘s fifth and final Xfinity Series start of 2020 will come during the first race in Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 54 Toyota. The part-time car is not entered for Saturday’s event, dropping the number of cars for that race to 36.

Jeb Burton returns to JR Motorsports’ No. 8 car for both events. Kaz Grala is also set to pull double duty, piloting Richard Childress Racing’s No. 21 in each race.

No drivers are yet listed for B.J. McLeod Motorsports’ No. 5 or SS Green Light Racing’s No. 07 for either race. Vinnie Miller and David Starr, respectively, drove those cars in the Sept. 5 event at Darlington Raceway. Miller is instead set to drive McLeod’s No. 78.

BJ McLeod himself is entered in his team’s No. 6 car, while Stephen Leicht will drive MBM Motorsports’ No. 13 car for the first time this year. Chad Finchum moves to Hattori Racing’s No. 61, while Timmy Hill jumps into MBM’s No. 66 for a four-race, quadruple-duty weekend.



The Go Bowling 250 is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m., while the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 250 is set to get underway at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12.
