Las Vegas Race Preview

  • Josh Berry will sit in for Michael Annett again this week as Annett continues his recovery from a leg injury. It will be the fourth event in which the 30-year-old Tennessee driver will drive the Pilot Flying J #ThankATrucker Chevrolet.

  • Berry has one start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a NASCAR Xfinity Series car, and it came earlier this season with JRM’s No. 8 team. Berry started ninth and finished seventh in the spring race on the 1.5-mile oval.

  • Berry has made 19 NXS starts this season and earned a victory at Martinsville Speedway, along with five top-five and 10 top-10 finishes while pacing the field for 175 total laps.

“In the spring, we were able to earn a top-10 finish despite the fact that I had never raced at Las Vegas. That’s my goal this weekend, to get Michael (Annett) and this No. 1 Pilot Flying J #ThankATrucker team another solid finish. I know that Bummy (crew chief Mike Bumgarner) will have a fast Chevrolet Camaro for me, and I look forward to the opportunity to represent all of the truckers who work so hard to keep us going.” – Josh Berry
