Rudd tabbed to drive No. 28 or No. 88
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Robert Yates turned to a familiar face to help turn around his struggling Nextel Cup organization.
Ricky Rudd, who drove the No. 28 Ford for Robert Yates Racing from 2000-2002, will return to NASCAR's premier series after a year off to replace Dale Jarrett.
"I saw fire in Robert's eyes when I met him the other day," Rudd said on Thursday. "He's ready to get this operation turned around. The whole operation is hungry. I couldn't be back at a more opportune time."
