Ross Chastain Subbing for Joe Graf Jr. in Xfinity Race at COTA

After turning the 40th quickest lap in NASCAR Xfinity Series practice at Circuit of the Americas on Friday (May 21), Joe Graf Jr. will miss Saturday’s race. Two-time Xfinity winner Ross Chastain will fill in.

Chastain hasn’t competed in an Xfinity race since last November at Phoenix Raceway, finishing seventh for Kaulig Racing.

By slotting Chastain into the No. 07 Chevrolet, it allows him to get additional laps at COTA, becoming the ninth driver to pull double duty this weekend.
