Sadler at Chicagoland
Elliott Sadler will make his 13th NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) start at Chicagoland Speedway this Saturday night in Joliet, IL. In Sadler’s previous 12 NXS starts at Chicagoland, he’s recorded one victory in 2012, two top-five and six top-10 finishes. Earlier this year, Sadler started third and finished 11th.
The veteran driver from Emporia, Va. also has 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) starts at Chicagoland with one top-10 finish.
Previous NASCAR XFINITY Series Race
Sadler finished 24th during last Friday’s NXS race at Richmond International Raceway. The No. 1 OneMain Financial Ford Mustang started from the 12th position on Friday night for the 250 lap event. On Lap 43, Sadler’s left rear tire blew and the tire started to immediately come apart. Before Sadler could make it back to pit road, the shredded tire ripped the left rear quarter panel apart and caused damage to the rear brake lines. After the crew worked on the car, Sadler returned to the race four laps down in the 34th position. The No. 1 OneMain Financial Ford Mustang was able to gain ground in the closing stages and ultimately cross the finish line in the 24th position.

“I’ve won at Chicagoland before and it would be great to celebrate in Victory Lane again this Saturday night with my No. 1 OneMain Financial team. We’ve had a lot of bad luck this past month and we’re all ready to get over that speed bump and bring home a strong finish, Our practice sessions have been very positive, yet for some reason luck has been against us on race day. Hopefully, luck will change and this Saturday will be the start of eight great finishes in a row.”
