The Labonte brothers and a multiple Daytona race winner are back on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series grid this weekend.

And as restrictor plate racing always tends to produce crapshoots, it would not be surprising to see any of Bobby Labonte, Terry Labonte or Michael Waltrip figure into the lead pack late in Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400.

Both Terry Labonte and Waltrip have made two starts this season (both Daytona and Talladega), while Bobby Labonte is back for the first time since the Daytona 500.

Bobby Labonte takes over the No. 33 Circle Sport Chevrolet entered by Joe Falk, which will have ECR engine power this weekend. “Texas Terry” is in the No. 32 Fas Lane Ford for Frank Stoddard; Waltrip is in the No. 66 Toyota as part of the MWR/Jay Robinson partnership.

Falk provided some insights into Bobby Labonte’s ride on his Twitter page this week:

Meanwhile the Hillman Racing No. 40, which Landon Cassill took to a top-15 finish in the Daytona 500, has new sponsorship this weekend from NBS Building.
