THOMASVILLE, N.C. – Rick Ware Racing has announced plans to field three full-time teams in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series next year.
The organization has fielded two full-time teams this year, with a third team joining the program midway through the year. The team also fielded four cars in two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events this year.
J.J. Yeley, who has made 14 starts for the team this year, will drive one of Ware’s cars for the full schedule next season.
“I am excited to have J.J. Yeley on board with the Rick Ware Racing organization for the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season,” said team owner Rick Ware. “J.J. 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.”
Yeley is a veteran of 290 NASCAR Cup Series starts. He’s earned two top-five and eight top-10 finishes during his career.
“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. “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.”
The team plans to announce its remaining driver lineup for 2020 in the near future. Fourteen drivers, including Yeley, have competed in cars fielded by Rick Ware Racing this season.
