This Week's Texas 28 Spirits Stage Toyota at Talladega Superspeedway: JJ Yeley will pilot Chassis No. 292 in the Winn-Dixie 300 at Talladega Superspeedway. Yeley last raced this chassis in the season opening race in Daytona where he was racing inside the top-10 before being caught up in the big wreck involving Kyle Busch. The car has been repaired and is ready for action this week in Talladega.
Yeley at Talladega Superspeedway:
JJ will be making his 5th career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at the Talladega Superspeedway to go along with his nine starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the track. Yeley has a Pole Award to his credit in XFINITY Series competition which came in the 2006 event.
JJ finished 7th in the race last year for JGL Racing at Talladega Superspeedway which marks his career best effort at the Alabama superspeedway.
JJ's Thoughts on Talladega:
"Talladega is a fan favorite with all of the action and pack racing - but it can be stressful for a driver. You always seem to be running in a big pack with really no where to go if something happens - which it normally does. Handling is not as big of an issue at Talladega as it is when we are at other tracks but you want to be fast right off the trailer and remain that way through the weekend."
"We had a really strong car in Daytona and for the most part we were able to keep it towards the front all day. Unfortunately we got caught up in the Big One but the guys on this JGL Racing team have worked hard to repair that damage and we should be strong once again at Talladega."
JGL Racing Fields Third Car for Kenny Wallace in Dega:
NASCAR veteran and TV personality Kenny Wallace will pilot the No. 26 Toyota this week at Talladega Superspeedway for JGL Racing. The JGL Racing team planned on Mike Wallace driving the No. 26 Toyota this week in Talladega much like he did for the season opening NASCAR XFINITY Series race in Daytona. However, emergency heart surgery 10 days ago put Mike on the sidelines and the decision was made for his brother, Kenny, to replace him.
"Talladega is where I have some of my best finishes in my NASCAR career," said Kenny. "I think to have success at Talladega you have to enjoy racing there and that style of racing - and I like it. I look forward to teaming up with JGL Racing and especially my longtime friend Gregg Mixon."
