Matt Kenseth and Justin Marks are among the 39 drivers listed on the entry list for the Gander Outdoors 400 at Pocono Raceway Sunday.

Kenseth will continue his part-time driving duties with Roush Fenway Racing in his seventh start this season. The 2003 champion is coming off a 15th-place finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday.

Marks will be making his third start in the Cup Series this year, running the No. 15 for the second time in place of Ross Chastain. The 37-year-old competed in the Daytona 500 and the road course race at Sonoma in June.

Other notable entries, listed in numerical order, include Landon Cassill in the No. 00 for StarCom Racing. Cassill will be making his 14th start for the team this year and the 13th behind the wheel of the No. 00.

Reed Sorenson will pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet for Premium Motorsports. Sorenson has made eight prior starts in 2018, all with Premium, with a season-high finish of 27th at Kansas in May.

J.J. Yeley will run his third race with BK Racing in the No. 23 entry this year. His best finish for the team was at Daytona in July (18th).

In his seventh start this season for Rick Ware Racing, B.J. McLeod will pilot the No. 51 Chevrolet. His highest finish thus far in 2018 was a 32nd-place effort at Kentucky this month.

MBM Motorsports will field an entry with its No. 66 Toyota with Timmy Hill set to make his sixth start for the team this year. The team last competed in the Cup Series at Kentucky. Hill’s highest finish this year for the team has been 32nd-place twice.

Tri-Star Motorsports will field Corey LaJoie in the No. 72 Chevrolet. LaJoie will be making his 12th start of 2018. His highest finish in the No. 72 was 24th at Kansas in May.

StarCom Racing will field a second entry with Kyle Weatherman back behind-the-wheel of the No. 99 Chevrolet for the second straight race and third time this season. This is the eight time this season and fifth consecutive week SCR will have a second car race in a Cup Series race.

Since NASCAR considers 40 entries a full field for a Cup Series race, no teams will have to qualify their way into the race.

Television coverage of the Gander Outdoors 400 will be on 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
