XLVelocity Business Partner and Nextel Cup Driver Travis Kvapil becomes one of the Yates Racing Team first drivers.

Travis Kvapil was announced as the new driver of the No. 88 Yates Racing Ford Fusion for 2008. Kvapil spoke about the opportunity via telephone Saturday afternoon with Ford Racing.

TRAVIS KVAPIL No. 88 Yates Racing Ford Fusion This is definitely a great opportunity. I took a step back going to the Truck Series in the hopes that an opportunity like this would come along. I had to go out and prove myself again and try to win races and prove to team owners that maybe I deserved another shot in Nextel Cup. For this to come along, obviously Im really excited. Im definitely excited that Yates Racing is gonna have an affiliation and a lot of support from Roush Fenway as far as hardware and engineering and the marketing side of it. I think its gonna help Yates become a little stronger and Im just really excited to be a part of it and looking forward to getting going.
