Motorsports Notebook: It's official: Yeley is a free agent

Aug 11, 2007 | Posted by: Charlotte.com | Full story: Charlotte.com

“If I knew that, I could buy a lottery ticket and be a rich man. It's difficult to say. Obviously, there is excellent equipment here. Our teammates do good. Our problem was we were too inconsistent.”

Nextel Cup driver J.J. Yeley officially cast his hat in the free-agent ring Friday, admitting he will not return to Joe Gibbs Racing next season.

On Monday, the Observer reported Kyle Busch had signed a letter of intent to drive for Yeley's Cup team next season. Yeley's contract with JGR expires at the end of this season and will not be renewed.

'I don't have a date set on when I'm going to announce what I'm doing, but I have talked to several other teams and I can assure you the teams I'm talking to are top-quality teams that want to make me a championship driver,' Yeley said. Read more

Thank God!
Best wishes to the ego's at J.G.R.
It will be entertaining.
Go JJ!

Is it me or was Joe Gibbs satelite feed during the press conference, like watching a train wreck.

I hope JJ goes to either Childress or DEI since they've teamed up on their engine program. I think he and Truex would make good teammates.

If Joe Gibbs thought he had problems in the past, just wait until he has 3 drivers with egos & attitudes all fighting for pecking order.

I think Gibbs will have their hands full with three great drivers with three very strong personalities. I am sorry to see JJ out of a ride but I am sure he will land on his feet.

Well, on Nascar Now on ESPN today, they said that DEI officials said that Yeley is not an option for them, so you can mark that team off.
Thank God no DEI!! Most likely RYR or RCR for Yeley.

Good, he can go there and continue to kill whatever he likes to call a "career", frankly i hate the bastard known as Doug Yates anyways. There bout to lose both their sponsors, cant blame Rudd and Jarrett for bailing on them, and merger or not, their organization is goin strait to hell and that's fine by me, they can take Yeley and Gilligan with them! Poor Paul Newman, he's so damn old, he's probably losing touch with reality and they suckered into a damn mess!
You need to clean that potty mouth. Don't know why Topix puts up with your filth.....

I hope he gets to go somewhere where he can shine. He seems like a good guy and deserves a good ride. He didn't have a chance at jgr. They were to worried with stewart. This is better for jj anyway.

Gilligan and Yeley just need a chance with a descent team. They are both good drivers. Jarrett just bailed for the money and to get toyota moving. Thats done alot of good this year. How many races has he actually made? He was a trader the day he went to toyota. The same way stewart will be next year. Nascar is an american sport. Leave the foreigners out of it.

If you heard the way Doug was talkin bout Junior and him wanting the #38, you'd bad mouth him too. If you go to jayski.com or espn.com , you'll find the article. Doug Yates is a huge jerk.

I tell you, you Yeley fans suck ass! You fans are the lamest ive ever seen. You idiots havent even been talking about him since ive been gone. He's in the rumor mill, he's being considered for shitty rides, and here u idiots have sat idle? Yeley's even been a discussion just because i've badmouthed him! You Yeley fans are pathetic and should be thankful im hear to even bring any life to the Yeley forum! And if you were able to send a message to Yeley, tell him i hope his engine blows and just to keep imagining that the outside wall is the Pit Road enterance! Im sure itll be a short line to get thru, especially for a driver that can get a ride for next year!
Cheers to potty mouth.......
