Yeley and Burton swap rides

Yeley will now pilot the No. 26 while Burton takes over the No. 23.

J.J. Yeley and Jeb Burton will swap seats starting next weekend at Darlington Raceway.

Yeley will now drive the No. 26 while Burton will pilot the No. 23 Dr. Pepper Camry. BK Racing informed its teams of the decision Monday afternoon.

Team owner Ron Devine told Motorsport.com, "we're making changes in an effort to improve performance and hopefully provide some senior leadership with J.J. to the 26 team."

Yeley, who is competing for the Xfinity Series title, posted a season-high result of 14th at Talladega Superspeedway.

Burton's best effort was 29th at his home track of Martinsville Speedway. The 23-year-old rookie has qualified for just 18 of 24 Cup races. He has an average finish of 36.4.
