Description

James Jonathan Christopher Beltram Hernandez Yeley (born October 5, 1976 in Phoenix, Arizona) is a NASCAR driver. Nicknamed "J. J." (Jimmy/Jack; after his father and a close family friend), he is currently a competitor in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, driving the #46 Whitney Motorsports Chevrolet Impala.
