With just days before the start of the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, there has been a shakeup to the driver lineup for one car that will compete in the season-opening Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. 300 at Daytona, as JJ Yeley will now pilot the No. 66 MBM Motorsports machine in the season-opening NXS race.

Yeley, 45, will bring a new sponsor with him to the No. 66 car as remote Health Solutions and America’s Frontline Doctors will bring a sleek red, white and blue paint scheme for Daytona.

The chance to work with Yeley was something RHS could not pass up.

“The opportunity to raise awareness of an increasing issue with the Great American sport at the Great American Race with a driver like JJ Yeley who embodies the American Spirit and is willing to stand up for freedom is more than I could have ever hoped for,” said RHS CEO and Co-Founder Adam Hardage.

For Yeley, this is more than a sponsorship. The partnership with RHS hits home for the veteran racer.

“I’m truly excited and proud to be representing an organization like Remote Health Solutions and America’s Frontline Doctors. This is a cause that is truly near to my heart having dealt with many of these issues both, personally and with my family,” said Yeley.

According to a press release, the sponsorship deal is for several races during the 2022 season.

Carl Long confirmed to that the team will attempt to run Yeley for the full 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series campaign and that deals are coming into place to make that a reality.

Yeley confirmed to FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass on Daytona 500 Media Day that he has declared for NASCAR Xfinity Series points in 2022 and hopes to run the full 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

Timmy Hill had been previously announced as the driver of the No. 66 MBM NASCAR Xfinity Series entry back on January 20th, with sponsorship from Coble Enterprises.
