There will be a spiffy new look for the Rick Ware Racing No. 27 machine this weekend at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course, as XBOX and the game NASCAR Heat 5 will be the primary sponsors on the car that will be driven by JJ Yeley.
The car with a black base features blue flames on the sides and has a red accent on the A-pillar, C-pillar and roof area.
The 43-year old Yeley has had very effective and clean season driving for RWR. He is averaging a 29.4 finish this season, and he has yet to record an incident on track this year. He is the only driver with more than 20 starts in 2020 to have zero on-track incidents at this point in the NASCAR Cup Series season.
Yeley enters this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series Go Bowling 235 tied for a career-best top-30 finishing streak. If he can finish inside the top-30 this weekend, it will eclipse the mark he set back in the 2006/2007 seasons while running the No. 18 car for Joe Gibbs Racing.

While there have been no road course races in the Cup Series so far this season, Yeley’s last road course start, at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, resulted in a 29th-place finish.
