“This year we have had some very impressive paint schemes that have received a lot of national exposure, we feel this car and scheme will also get a lot of attention too. Daytona is a very special place and our company has had some great finishes there in the past. 

“We are hoping that J.J. (Yeley) can rise up to the occasion and give DriveSmart a great race on what we expect will be a great weekend of racing with our friends and guests.”
