Yeley lands sponsor for Daytona 500
Add J.J. Yeley to the list of drivers snaring sponsors for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500.
The driver raced his way into the Daytona 500 through his qualifying race as he attempts to help build his organization. Now, he has secured sponsorship from AAMCO Transmissions and Total Car Care Centers for Sunday’s season-opening race.
Yeley is moving back into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series full time. He suffered a career-threatening neck injury after crashing at a dirt track event at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., in 2009, but is back in the Cup ranks this year.
"Having a race car that is fully decaled for the Daytona 500 — our biggest race of the year — is a huge deal," Yeley said. "We have to take every opportunity we can and maximize it so we can keep racing. This might mean we get to race at Phoenix."
