JJ Yeley will drive one of tree Rick Ware Racing cars full time next season in the NASCAR Cup Series.
The drivers of RWR’s other two cars will be announced later.
“I can’t thank Rick and Lisa Ware enough for the opportunity to be back behind the wheel of a NASCAR Cup Series car full-time next year,” Yeley said in a media release. “They are a family owned team, who continues to grow and build new relationships with sponsors, and expand their efforts in NASCAR. Over the past couple weeks, we’ve accumulated some pretty solid finishes and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish in 2020.”
Yeley has appeared in 14 events this season for RWR with an average start of 35.9 and an average finish of 29.2. Yeley had a best finish of 12th at Daytona.
“I am excited to have JJ Yeley on board with the Rick Ware Racing organization for the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season,” team owner Rick Ware said in a media release. “JJ is a great asset to any team, and has a proven track record for bringing home solid finishes for RWR. I look forward to having him on board, as we continue to grow this team.”
