JGL Racing announced Monday morning that series veteran Eric McClure would pilot the No. 24 Toyota Camry for the 2015 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

The team also confirmed Monday morning that J.J. Yeley would return to the organization, driving the No. 28 Toyota Camry. Yeley ran 30 of the 33 Nationwide Series races for JGL Racing in 2014, scoring a fifth-place finish at Road America and a seventh-place finish at Talladega Superspeedway.

McClure heads to JGL Racing from TriStar Motorsports, where he spent the last four NASCAR Nationwide Series seasons. In their time together, McClure and TriStar Motorsports recorded one top-10 finish, an eighth in the 2013 season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Joining McClure at JGL Racing is longtime sponsor Hefty and Reynolds Wrap, a partnership that stretches back 10 seasons.

McClure took to his Twitter account Monday morning to help spread the news.

While McClure departs TriStar Motorsports after four seasons, the team announced in December that 22-year-old Cale Conley would join the organization for the full 2015 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

The W.Va., native drove 11 NASCAR Nationwide Series races for Richard Childress Racing in 2014, and recording a best finish of sixth at Kentucky Speedway.

"I am looking forward to working with people that are excited to work with me and help me mature as a driver and competitor in this series," Conley said in a team release. "I am grateful to Mark Smith and TriStar Motorsports for being willing to take a chance with me and let me race weekend after weekend after weekend, so I can get ‘one step closer’ to my ultimate dream of being a NASCAR Sprint Cup champion."

The NASCAR Xfinity Series season kicks off on Saturday, Feb. 21 in the Alert Today Florida 300 at Daytona International Speedway.
