The NASCAR Cup Series’ inaugural race at Circuit of the Americas will feature 40 entries, meaning all will qualify, barring any entry list changes.
The three open teams joining Ryan Preece’s full-time No. 37 in the field include the No. 16 for AJ Allmendinger, Austin Cindric’s No. 33 and Ty Dillon in the No. 96.
Kyle Tilley is currently set to be the lone series debut, driving Live Fast Motorsports’ No. 78.
Justin Haley is entered in Spire Motorsports’ No. 77, but it’s unknown if he will end up racing after COVID-19 protocols knocked him out of the field last week at Dover International Speedway.
The Echopark Texas Grand Prix is set for Sunday, May 23, at 2:30 p.m. ET, with TV coverage from Fox Sports 1.
