This Week's No. 28 JGL Racing Toyota at Richmond International Raceway:  J.J. Yeley will pilot Chassis No. 462 in the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 at Richmond. This is a new chassis for JGL Racing and will be the first time Yeley has driven this car.

Yeley at Richmond:
JJ will be making his 16th career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at the Richmond International Raceway to go along with his 11 starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the track.  Yeley has seven Top-20 finishes in XFINITY Series competition at RIR with a best finish being a 12th-place effort in 2007.

JJ finished 19th in the Spring race earlier this year for JGL Racing at Richmond International Raceway.

Horsepower Change:
For just the third week, Yeley and his JGL Racing team roll into Richmond with the new addition of Joe Gibbs Racing Engines to their No. 28 Toyota.   In their continued effort to become a top team in the sport, JGL Racing will campaign the JGR horsepower for the remainder of the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season.

J.J.'s Thoughts on Richmond:
"What is not to like about great short track racing under the lights at Richmond.  It is always a fan friendly environment and one that the drivers and teams appreciate.  Getting good bite off the corner is crucial at Richmond as that sets you up for great passing opportunities which is always premium at Richmond."

"We have come a long way as a team since the first Richmond back in the Spring.  We struggled a little in that race and it was one of the first times Steven Lane (crew chief) and myself worked together.

"We are coming off a strong and exciting run at Darlington last week and I think we will carry that momentum over to Richmond.  We have upgraded our engine program to one of the best in the sport and as a team we are growing each and every week.  I think all of us on this JGL Racing team have high expectations for Friday night."
