NY Racing, an organization that has become well-known for making sporadic part-time attempts in the NASCAR Cup Series over the last 10-plus years, is set to return to the racetrack next weekend at Pocono Raceway.

John Cohen, owner of NY Racing, confirmed to the team’s plans to field the No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the July 14 event at Pocono Raceway, which has been dubbed The Great American Getaway 400 Presented by VISITPA.

J.J. Yeley will continue to serve as the driver of the No. 44 Chevrolet, returning to the organization for his fourth NASCAR Cup Series start of the season, after getting a last-minute call to attempt the Daytona 500 at Daytona, then returning for the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas, and Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte for the part-time organization.

The Phoenix, Arizona-native has a long-standing history with NY Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series, dating back to Richmond Raceway in the Spring of 2014. His nine starts with the organization are the most of any driver.

Throughout a career spanning two decades, Yeley has accumulated 806 starts across NASCAR’s top-three divisions, but as of this year, competes on a part-time basis in the NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series. In addition to NY Racing, Yeley has driven for both SS-GreenLight Racing and Joey Gase Motorsports this season.

Yeley has recorded nine finishes inside the top-10 in his NASCAR Cup Series career, the most recent of which was a seventh-place result last Summer at Atlanta Motor Speedway, while driving the No. 15 Ford Mustang for Rick Ware Racing.

The current season hasn’t been kind to Yeley or NY Racing Team, after the No. 44 failed to qualify for the Daytona 500 after being passed by seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson off the final corner in his Bluegreen Vacations Duel. Two weeks later, the organization rebounded for a season-high 34th at Las Vegas, before a steering issue took the team out of the Coca-Cola 600 after just 114 laps, netting a 40th-place result.

According to NASCAR’s Roster Portal, which shows record of a Team Roster submitted for NY Racing Team at Pocono Raceway, Jay Guy will continue in his role as crew chief for the No. 44 Chevrolet.
