Longtime NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver J.J. Yeley will drive the No. 36 Chevrolet SS for Tommy Baldwin Racing full time this season. Yeley drove for the team three times in 2012 at Indianapolis, Watkins Glen and Dover.
TBR announced Monday that Golden Corral would return to the team in 2013 as a primary sponsor for the No. 36 at the four superspeedway races. On Tuesday, the team announced an additional primary sponsor for three races. United Mining Equipment (UME) will be on Yeley's car at Kentucky Speedway and both races at Bristol.
Yeley has a diverse background in racing, driving in all three of NASCAR's premier series, the ARCA racing series, IndyCar and IROC and has participated in Tony Stewart's annual Prelude to the Dream several times, coming in second in 2011.
Golden Corral will also bring back its "Top 10 Kids Eat Free" promotion. Only it will be called "J.J.'s Mondays" on the Monday following the race if Yeley finishes in the top 10.
