Sadler at Iowa Speedway
Elliott Sadler will make his 10th NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) start at Iowa Speedway this Saturday evening in Newton, IA. In Sadler’s previous nine starts, he has one win, three pole awards, six top-five and nine top-10 finishes at Iowa. Earlier this year, Sadler crossed the line in the ninth position when the NXS raced at Iowa Speedway.
Previous NASCAR XFINITY Series Race
Sadler finished fifth during last Saturday’s NXS race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sadler qualified sixth on Saturday morning for the 100-lap, 250-mile event at the historic race track. Not long after the green flag dropped, Sadler radioed to the team the car was extremely tight. Cautions on Lap 12 and on Lap 22 allowed for the No. 1 OneMain Financial crew to make critical adjustments on Sadler’s car. Sadler pitted for his final time under green on Lap 67, for fuel and four fresh tires. Sadler managed his fuel in the final 30 laps and the pit strategy worked out perfectly. Sadler crossed the line fifth and the No. 1 OneMain Financial team was able to bring home a great top-five finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series Driver Point Standings

“Last week’s top-five finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was such a huge team accomplishment. We struggled in both practices, but my team never gave up and provided me with a fast car for qualifying, which then gave us a great starting position for the race. The guys have been working so hard in the shop building these new cars and the results have shown. We have three top-five finishes with our new cars. We finished ninth earlier this year at Iowa and with our great finish at Indy, we’re ready to get back on the track and bring home another positive finish.”
