I post in the Tony Stewart forum but I thought I should tell all of you Yeley fans about what he did at the Brickyard. My husband and I were in line behind the Chevy stage waiting to get autographs from Kenny Wallace, Ward Burton amd Scott Wimmer. On the Chevy stage they were doing questions and answers. JJ stopped and signed autographs before and after his Q&A. On his way back to the car to take him to the hotel, he saw a very little girl all done up in her JJ outfit and he walked over to her, signed her hat and asked her parents if they would like a picture with he and the little girl. He knelt down and held her and her parents snapped away. I looked straight in his eyes and told him how nice it was to see a driver do that. All of you JJ fans should be very proud of your driver and now I am a Yeley fan as well.

Yes, it is very common for JJ to do that. I got two autographs and a photo when I met him. A lot of drivers "brush off" people seeking autographs or photos but not JJ. He is a class act all the way.

When he was seventeen, He did that with my 6 year old daughter. She never has forgotten that and he will always be special in her heart. The kid has class and the heart of a lion.

Thanks for sharing. I've heard some awesome things he has done for fans. Even going into the stands to give some children his gloves.

He's just a great person! And yeah- I am always proud to be a JJ Yeley fan.
