CUP: Yeley Scuffs The Wall In Sprint Showdown

SOURCE: Robinson-Blakeney Racing Facebook
J.J. Yeley finished last in Saturday’s Sprint Showdown at the Charlotte Motor Speedway when his #49 JPO Absorbents / America Israel Racing Toyota suffered crash damage and exited after 3 of the race’s 40 laps.
Yeley qualified 18th in the 22-car field at an average speed of 186.047 mph. In the early laps of the race itself, Yeley was racing David Reutimann when he ran high and made contact with the outside wall in turns three and four. Although the car did not appear severely damaged and did not bring out a caution, the team decided to take the car behind the wall.

*This marks the tenth time in the last thirteen runnings that the last-place finisher of the Sprint Showdown fell out due to a crash.
*This is the first last-place finish for the #49 and for Yeley in the Showdown.
