Notes:

– Noah Gragson will make his first career NXS start in Fontana this weekend.
– In two starts at tracks 2 miles or greater in the NXS, Gragson has earned a best finish of fourth in April 2018 at Talladega Superspeedway.
– In seven previous starts in the Truck Series on speedways 2 miles or greater in length, Gragson has earned one top five and two top-10s with a best finish of fourth coming in August 2018 at Michigan International Speedway.
– The Las Vegas native improved two positions in the NXS point standings following last weekend’s event at Phoenix. Gragson now sits eighth, just 39 markers behind first.

“I’m really looking forward to heading out to Fontana this weekend with our Switch Chevrolet. It’s a fast and wide track with a ton of room to race around. Dave (Elenz, crew chief) and this No. 9 team ran really well here last season and I am confident that we can unload with that same speed this year and have a similar result on Saturday. I’m ready for the challenge.”
