NASCAR once again delivered an exciting weekend for fans. The Cup Series playoff race at Homestead-Miami Speedway was filled with intense contact, leaving some drivers satisfied with their performance and others disappointed. Unfortunately, Kyle Larson, who led the most laps, experienced a crash into the sand barrels in the pit lane. Similarly, Rick Ware Racing’s #15 driver, JJ Yeley, also faced a similar fate.
The #15 team’s 47-year-old veteran has faced tough challenges in his time in Cup Series racing. Despite this, he remains determined to make a comeback in 2024. With the season finale at Phoenix approaching, Yeley reflects on his future and the likelihood of achieving his goals.
JJ Yeley was involved in a dangerous crash at Homestead.
During the 222nd lap of the race, a restart was initiated due to the red flag caused by Larson’s pit lane crash. The cars in close proximity on the high lane posed a risk of minor contact turning into a major disaster.
John Hunter Nemechek, the newest member of Legacy Motor Club, caused a chain of collisions when he bumped into Ross Chastain’s #1 Chevy. This caused JJ Yeley to crash into the wall after being hit on the left side of his car.

The incident on the backstretch resulted in Yeley retiring early and finishing in 33rd place, along with other drivers who were involved in crashes such as Larson, Denny Hamlin, and Martin Truex Jr.
JJ Yeley, a prominent figure in NASCAR, has been gaining attention for his efforts in supporting those affected by war in the Middle East. Through a partnership with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, the 47-year-old has used his latest livery paint scheme to promote peace and spread a message.

What is the proposed course of action for Yeley in 2024?
Rick Ware Racing announced their upcoming plans earlier this year. They will be teaming up with RFK Racing to bring on board Kaulig Racing’s Justin Haley. This raises speculation about JJ Yeley and his future with the #15 car. In a post-race interview in Miami, Yeley stated, “There are multiple plans in place. There is always a plan.”
“It can be challenging to turn these ideas into reality, but I will be completing the remainder of the year driving for Rick Ware Racing in car #15. The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews will be sponsoring the car in Martinsville next week, followed by Patriot Mobile in the final race in Phoenix. We are actively communicating with potential sponsors in hopes of finalizing plans for 2024.”
It will be intriguing to observe if JJ Yeley will secure a position in Rick Ware’s strategy, with the charters playing a role, or if he may potentially move down to the Xfinity level.
