LAS VEGAS — All three of NASCAR’s national series will be racing this weekend at the 1.5-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In all three series, no new teams are entered. In the NASCAR Cup Series, there are no changes at all between Fontana and Las Vegas.

However, in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, one of the changes from Fontana to Las Vegas came Wednesday. Kyle Weatherman was named to the No. 02 Our Motorsports entry, replacing David Starr who was originally entered.

No details were confirmed on why Starr was replaced by Weatherman.

Meanwhile, Mason Maggio will make his series debut in the No. 66 MBM entry, driven by Timmy Hill last week at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Cali.

Kyle Busch will make his NXS return in the No. 10 Kaulig entry driven by Austin Dillon last week. Josh Reaume will take over the No. 91 DGM entry driven by Ross Chastain last week.

After having the two cars to beat in Sunday’s Cup race in Fontana, Chastain and Busch will each run Friday’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Las Vegas.

Chastain will run the No. 41 Niece entry, driven by Travis Pastrana at Daytona.

Busch will drive his own No. 51 entry that Jack Wood drove at Daytona.

Turning 18 means Jake Garcia will begin his full-time Truck tenure in the No. 35 McAnally Racing entry Chase Elliott drove at Daytona.

Other changes between Daytona and Las Vegas:

  • No. 1 TRICON Garage: Kaz Grala in, Jason White out
  • No. 17 TRICON Garage: John Hunter Nemechek in, Sammy Smith out
  • No. 20 Young’s Motorsports: Matt Mills in, Derek Kraus out
  • No. 22 AM Racing: Max Gutierrez in, Josh Reaume out
  • No. 34 Reaume Bros: Josh Reaume in, Jason A. White out
  • No. 46 G2G Racing: Brennan Poole in, Norm Benning out

The Trucks have 35 entrants, down seven from 42 at Daytona.

The No. 30 OnPoint Motorsports Toyota was entered Monday but they withdrew. At Daytona, they ran with Chris Hacker.

The No. 04 Roper Racing Ford is entered after missing the Daytona race with Kaden Honeycutt driving.

Last week, team owner Cory Roper was also suspended indefinitely for violating NASCAR’s substance abuse policy.

The No. 28 FDNY Racing and No. 96 Peck Motorsports entries also DNQ’d at Daytona and aren’t entered for Las Vegas.

Other Daytona entries not entered at Las Vegas:

  • No. 7 Spire Motorsports
