Entry List: 2021 Xfinity 500

One of the most crucial NASCAR Cup Series races of the season has arrived and it will all transpire at one of the most iconic and brutal tracks on the circuit: Martinsville Speedway. The half-mile short track hosts the final opportunity for NASCAR playoff Round of 8 drivers to keep their aspirations of a championship alive.

Thirty-eight cars will take the green for the 500-lap race, barring any updates to the entry list.

Garrett Smithley returns to Rick Ware Racing in their No. 15 Chevrolet. Joey Gase will pilot the team’s No. 53 Chevrolet.
