Mooresville, NC (May 8, 2013) - From the high banks of Talladega to the narrow grooves of Darlington Raceway, JJ Yeley and the No. 36 Tommy Baldwin Racing team are ready for redemption.
Yeley’s history at Darlington: In just six career starts at “The Lady in Black,” JJ Yeley has a top finish of 18th in 2007 with an average finish of 31.2.
Yeley on Darlington: “After last week’s disappointing end to Talladega, I am ready to dance with the “Lady in Black” this weekend. I have always loved Darlington. This track has so much character and history to it. It is one of the widest tracks that we race at with the narrowest racing groove. That will lead to a lot of action and an exciting race for both fans and drivers.”
Yeley by the numbers: Heading into Darlington, Yeley is currently sitting 32nd in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings.
