If you tune into this weekend’s Yellawood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway NASCAR race, you’ll notice J.J. Yeley’s #15 Ford Mustang wearing the familiar red-white-blue logo of Summit Racing.

The sponsorship is the result of a growing relationship between Summit Racing and Rick Ware Racing (RWR), as Summit Racing already sponsors the newly-minted #51 RWR NHRA Top Fuel Team with driver Clay Millican.

“We have a great partnership with Clay Millican and Rick Ware Racing,” said Jim Greenleaf, Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports & Events Manager. “We appreciate the opportunity to expand that partnership with J.J. Yeley for the Yellawood 500.”

“Summit Racing Equipment has grown to support many forms of motorsport throughout our almost 55 years,” said Al Noe, Summit Racing Equipment Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re enthusiasts who share our customers’ passion for performance and competition, and it will be exciting to see the Summit Racing Equipment logo on J.J.’s Mustang at Talladega. We want to thank Rick Ware Racing for the opportunity to showcase Summit Racing in this event.”
