Longtime NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver J.J. Yeley will drive the No. 36 Chevrolet SS for Tommy Baldwin Racing for four races this season.
Yeley has driven for the team three times last year, at Indianapolis, Watkins Glen and Dover. Tommy Baldwin Racing announced on Monday that Golden Corral would return to the team in 2013 as a primary sponsor for the No. 36 at the four superspeedway races.
Yeley has been 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.
“It’s awesome to have Golden Corral back on the No. 36 Chevrolet SS for the superspeedway races in 2013. We are excited for the return of the Top 10 Kids Eat Free promotion and the exciting promotions we have in store for the fans this season,” team owner Tommy Baldwin Jr. said.
The four specific races that Yeley will enter haven’t been announced yet.
