Gilliland Replaces Leicht to Drive the No. 90 CitiFinancial Ford at Richmond

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (September 6, 2006) -- Robert Yates Racing announced today that David Gilliland will replace Stephen Leicht in the No. 90 CitiFinancial Ford for this Friday's Emerson 250 at Richmond International Raceway.

"In an effort to improve the chassis setups at Robert Yates Racing in both the Busch and Cup cars, we felt by having one driver run both races we would get the most consistent feedback," said Robert Yates. "Stephen has done a great job for us this season and this change is not a reflection of Stephen's performance. He will be back in the No. 90 CitiFinancial Ford at Dover."
