This Race Last Year
In February 2014, Sadler qualified in the fifth position. During the race, Sadler worked his way up to second, but in the closing laps of the race, his car was shuffled back in the group. Stuck in the draft line, Sadler was unable make a pass in the final lap and crossed the finish line in the fifth position.

Sadler on Racing at Daytona International Speedway:
“It’s an indescribable feeling we have as drivers when we travel each year to Daytona and start a fresh season with new hopes and dreams. Daytona gives us the feeling that this year is our year. I know personally, that I can’t wait to jump into my new ride with Roush Fenway Racing in my No. 1 OneMain Financial Ford Mustang. I’m excited to start the new season off on the right track with my new crew chief Phil Gould and my now full time sponsor, OneMain Financial. OneMain Financial has been such a great sponsor for me and a true loyal sponsor in NASCAR for the past 12 years. I’m so ready to get behind the wheel on Saturday afternoon and start off the 2015 season with a great finish.”
