When the No. 36 Chevrolet of Tommy Baldwin Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series hits the track at Dover International Speedway next weekend, the regular driver of the car, Dave Blaney, won’t be behind the wheel. Instead, J.J. Yeley is expected to drive the car in the AAA 400 on Sept. 29.
“We love working with J.J.,” car owner Tommy Baldwin said. “He is a good driver, and we are looking forward to what we can do together at Dover.
Yeley has a total of 11 Sprint Cup starts at Dover, with a best finish of 24th in 2008. That’s two positions better than the best finish for the No. 36 car at the track. Blaney drove the car to a 26th-place finish at Dpver in 2011.
After starting 2012 with new team, Robinson-Blakeney Racing, to drive a No. 49 Toyota, he made the move to Max Q Motorsports to drive the No. 37, a team that just happens to have a technical alliance with Tommy Baldwin Racing.
