J.J. Yeley finished 21st in the 2007 points, winning a pole and more than $4 million. Fired from Joe Gibbs, he landed with satellite Hall of Fame Racing but it has been a long drop. Yeley has failed to qualify for a race, hasn't posted any top-10 finishes and is 36th in the points -- outside of the guaranteed starting spot for each race.
