LEBANON, Tenn. -- Buckshot Jones has been named to drive the Yellow Transportation Dodge in the Federated Auto Parts 300 Saturday night at the Nashville Superspeedway.

"I'm really excited about this opportunity," said Jones. "The Yellow team almost won the race at Nashville a couple of months ago. And I know that the team expects to contend for the win again this time."

This will be the first NASCAR Busch Series start for Jones in two and a half years.

During his 145-race Busch Series career, Jones has scored two wins, 13 top-five and 33 top-10 finishes.

In the first race at Nashville this year, the Yellow team with Johnny Benson behind the wheel went into next-to-last lap of the race with a chance to win the event. Benson was running third when rookies Kyle Busch and Clint Bowyer, running 1-2, got together on the backstretch. Benson, who was only a car length back of the duo, got caught up in the melee as did fourth-place Robby Gordon. As a result, Michael Waltrip leaped from fifth to first. Benson ended up seventh.
