Notes:

– Following a top-10 finish last weekend in Darlington, Noah Gragson has locked his place in the 2019 NXS Playoffs. The 21-year-old driver is currently seventh in the championship standings with just two races remaining before the playoffs begin.

– Gragson will make his first NXS start at Indianapolis this weekend.

– In seven previous starts on tracks greater than two miles in length in the NXS, the Las Vegas native has recorded two top fives and three top 10s, with a best finish of second coming at Michigan earlier this season.

Quote:

“This weekend will be my first time heading to Indianapolis, so I am really looking forward to getting on the track on Friday. JRM has always brought fast Camaros to Indy, especially with this rules package, which gives me a lot of confidence heading into the weekend that we will unload with that same speed with our Switch Chevrolet. It’s going to be unique for sure but I can’t wait to turn some laps on a track with as much history as Indy.”
