Preliminary entry list: AAA Texas 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway

NASCAR has released the preliminary entry list for Sunday's AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, host to Race No. 2 of three in the Eliminator Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

This week's preliminary entry list is especially "preliminary" since Joe Gibbs Racing has not yet announced who will drive the No. 20 JGR Toyota of Matt Kenseth, who NASCAR suspended Tuesday for two races for his actions against Joey Logano last weekend at Martinsville.
