A total of 31 cars are on the preliminary entry list, revealed Monday ahead of the Carneros 250. Two drivers are still to be announced. The NASCAR premier-series regulars participating are:

  • Erik Jones, in the No. 20 Toyota owned by David Gilliland
  • Alex Bowman, in the No. 24 Chevrolet from the Bill McAnally Racing stables
  • William Byron, in the No. 27 Chevy owned by Jerry Pitts
  • Aric Almirola, in a No. 41 Ford with Tony Stewart listed as the car owner of record
  • Daniel Suarez, in the No. 54 Toyota also owned by David Gilliland

Those five should benefit from extra track time ahead of Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 (3 p.m. ET, FS1, PRN, SiriusXM).

Three drivers in the current NASCAR Next class will also suit up for the sixth K&N West race of the season. Among those is Will Rodgers, who won the pole for the Sonoma race last year before finishing a close second to Kevin Harvick.

Other K&N regulars in the Next program who are scheduled to compete: Derek Kraus, winner of the West season opener and a three-time pole winner already this year; and Hailie Deegan, who has finished in the top 10 in all five K&N West races this season.
