This Week's No. 28 JGL Racing Toyota at Kansas Speedway: J.J. Yeley will pilot Chassis No. 235 in the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway. This chassis has become a favorite for Yeley and his JGL Racing team with this weekend being the ninth race of the 2015 season for this car. J.J. last piloted Chassis No. 235 a few weeks ago at Dover where he came home with a 12th-place finish.
Yeley at Kansas:
JJ will be making his ninth career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Kansas Speedway to go along with 12 previous starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and three starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Kansas City track. Yeley has a best finish of sixth at the 1.5-mile track which occurred during the 2004 NASCAR XFINITY Series event.
Last year, JJ and his No. 28 JGL Racing team finished 18th in the XFINITY Series event at Kansas Speedway.
J.J.'s Thoughts on Kansas:
"It is always great to go to Kansas as the track does a fantastic job in putting on a great weekend for everyone. Kansas is a fast track and our Joe Gibbs Racing horsepower will be a key component to this weekend. Track position seems to be so crucial at Kansas so getting a good qualifying effort in will be very important.
"This JGL Racing team is making tremendous strides as James Whitener (owner) continues to make improvements to his organization. The guys on this team work hard to bring a strong No. 28 Toyota to the track each and every week. We are bringing our favorite car with us this weekend and all of us expect a strong performance in Kansas."
With the 19th-place finish last week at Charlotte, Yeley remained 12th in the overall NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers' standings - just four points out of 11th and 89 points out of the Top-10.
