Sadler at Kansas
Elliott Sadler will make his sixth NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) start at Kansas this Saturday afternoon in Kansas City, KS. In Sadler’s previous five starts at Kansas, he has two top-five and four top-10 finishes. Last year, Sadler started and finished seventh in the NXS race at Kansas.
The veteran driver from Emporia, VA also has 11 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) starts at Kansas with one top-five and three top-10 finishes.
Previous NASCAR XFINITY Series Race
Sadler finished 10th in his special pink No. 1 OneMain Financial Ford Mustang last Friday night in the NXS race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Sadler qualified for the 200 lap event on Friday afternoon and started the night race from the 10th position. Sadler and his No. 1 OneMain Financial Ford Mustang battled in the top-15 for the majority of the race with a loose handling race car. With less than 50 laps to go, the yellow flag came out and Sadler was the Lucky Dog on the race track. Running 11th, Sadler came down pit road under caution and the crew made some major adjustments to tighten up Sadler’s car. The changes helped Sadler’s handling and he was able to drive his pink Ford across the finish line for a 10th-place finish.

“Last week was a special few days with my pink car and custom pink fire suit. I’m so lucky to have a great sponsor, OneMain Financial, who lets me race a pink race car to help raise Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October. I’m glad we were able to bring home another top-10, but I’m itching to get back in the car and bring home a win before the season ends. Last year I started and finished in seventh place and hopefully this Saturday afternoon I’ll be celebrating in Victory Lane with my OneMain Financial crew.”
