Nasse is not behind the wheel of his famous red and white #51 this weekend as he was asked to drive the #29 entry. For Nasse, this is a total change for him to just come in as a driver and not a driver/owner. He told us that he feels like he is under more stress because he is driving for someone else, but realizes that in order to move up, he needs to be focused as a driver and work with other teams. He is hoping to make the most of this opportunity this weekend.

Garrett Jones, Cole Rouse, John Hunter Nemechek and Justin Ashburn are the first cars out.
