J.J. Yeley is a second generation driver. He was behind the wheel of a quarter midget at the age of 10, later raced go-carts and at the age of 14 began racing midgets. Three years later he was in a non-wing sprint car setting track records.
One of the highlights of J.J.’s career was being the “youngest” driver at age 21 to qualify for the 1998 Indianapolis 500. He finished 9th in the 500 and went on to complete five Pep Boys Indy Racing League Events.
