Solidifying its ownership alliance with Doug Yates and Yates Racing, Front Row Motorsports owner Bob Jenkins announced Tuesday a name change to the organization. With the addition of Yates, the team will now officially be titled Front Row Motorsports with Yates Racing.
Doug Yates will be the listed owner of the team's Nos. 37 and 38 Ford Sprint Cup cars, with Bob Jenkins remaining the listed owner of the No. 34. The team will remain headquartered in Statesville, N.C.
The alliance secures all three entries into the top 35 in owner points heading into the 2010 Cup Series season. It also reunites Yates with his former drivers David Gilliland and Travis Kvapil.
"There has been a lot of movement this past off-season inside the sport," Yates said. "The opportunity came up with Bob [Jenkins] and to continue in the ownership role. I didn't have to think long about making this decision."
