There will be quite a bit of NASCAR flavor baked into the upcoming ASA STARS National Tour ECDM 150 at North Wilkesboro Speedway as a total of six full-time NASCAR National Series drivers are represented on the entry list for the event.

Erik Jones and Noah Gragson, teammates for LEGACY MOTOR CLUB in the NASCAR Cup Series, are both on the list. Jones will pilot the No. 4 entry, while Gragson will run the No. 30 machine.

Jones is a three-time NASCAR Cup Series winner, including last year’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Jones also has nine-career wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and was the 2015 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion.

Gragson is a rookie of the year contender in the NASCAR Cup Series this season. The 24-year-old has recorded 13 wins in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition and two wins in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Sammy Smith, who pilots the No. 18 Toyota Supra for Joe Gibbs Racing full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is also on the entry list in the No. 22 Toyota. Smith scored his first NASCAR Xfinity Series win earlier this season at Richmond Raceway.

Additionally, three full-timers from the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series are on the entry list as well. Niece Motorsports’ Carson Hocevar, GMS Racing’s Grant Enfinger, and ThorSport Racing’s Ty Majeski will all be a part of the 34-car entry list.

The six NASCAR National Series stars will face off against some of the top short-track racers in the country including Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse, and Derek Griffith to name a few.
