Robinson-Blakeney Racing, the race team started by long-time Nationwide Series owner Jay Robinson and Troy Blakeney, has announced that it has signed JJ Yeley to drive the team’s No. 49 Sprint Cup entry in 2012. Tony Furr, who has worked with Yeley in the past, will serve as crew chief for the car.
I am energized and looking forward to working with [owner and manager] Jay Robinson and our team beginning at Daytona in the Duel 150 race and building success all the way to Homestead. I have enjoyed a good working relationship in the past with Tony Furr as my crew chief and am happy to be partnered with him again on this team.
