Andy Lally Taking Over for Kyle Tilley in Cup Series Race at Indy Road Course

After the news of James Davison taking over for Kyle Tilley in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, it was announced Saturday (Aug. 14) that Andy Lally will replace Tilley in the NASCAR Cup Series race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Sunday.

Lally is a veteran on road courses and this will mark his first start in the Cup Series in 10 years. He’ll pilot the No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports entry. Tilley has been battling a sore shoulder which is preventing him from racing in both series.

Lally’s last start came in 2011 at Texas Motor Speedway in which he finished 29th. Also, in Xfinity he’ll make his 18th career start Saturday. He has notched seven top-10 finishes including a top five earlier this season at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Tilley is scheduled to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans next weekend.

The Verizon 200 at the Brickyard airs on Aug. 15 at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
