YELEY GETS THE LEAD IN
J.J. Yeley was moved to the back of the field -- and forced to undergo a stop-and-go penalty following the drop of the green flag to start the race -- before the start of tonight's LifeLock.com 400 in Chicago after inspectors found two water bottles in the Hall of Fame Racing #96 Toyota.
While the presence of water bottles isn't an issue in and of itself, the fact that the water bottles were filled with lead did cause an issue.
Yeley began the day 38th in points, 164 points out of the magical 35th spot. The #96 team will likely face what could be severe sanctions from NASCAR on Tuesday.
