2014 Bristol: Elliott Sadler NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

BRING ON THE COLOSSEUM: Elliott Sadler and the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 OneMain Financial team look forward to the fourth race of the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series season at Bristol Motor Speedway. In 14 Nationwide Series starts, Sadler has two wins at the half-mile Bullring in 1998 and 2012, five top-five and seven top-10 finishes with 172 laps led. The veteran driver also has 25 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at Bristol, with one win in 2005, three top-five and four top-10 finishes.

JUST THE STATS: Three races into the 2014 season, Sadler currently sits third in the Nationwide Series driver champion points standings, nine points back from the lead.

"Everyone knows Bristol Motor Speedway is one of my favorite tracks. I love the atmosphere, I love the racing and I enjoy the fast pace style in the big colosseum. The plan is to have two great practices, qualify up near the front and stay up front so I'll be in contention for the win during those last paint-swapping laps. Obviously that is easier said than done when it comes to Bristol, but this OneMain Financial team is ready for a win and this weekend is the perfect time for our first this season.

Qualifying at Bristol Motor Speedway:
"As a team we are still learning from these qualifying sessions. I don't think there is a team out there that has a blueprint of the best strategy for qualifying under the new format. Everyone is still learning and trying new tactics. Strategies that worked one week don't really play out the same the next week. Qualifying was still hectic at Las Vegas, and I guarantee qualifying at Bristol will be a must-see event. It will definitely be a challenge to get a quality full speed run around the half-mile track with so many other cars trying to do the same thing. Everyone is going to have to be on their toes in order to make this short track qualifying work successfully."

MEET SADLER: Fans will have the opportunity to meet Sadler at the Ingersoll Rand display on Friday, March 14 at 5:30 p.m. ET. The display, located outside turns 1 and 2 in the Earhart campgrounds, will be open for fans to walk through and autographs from Sadler.

WATCH OUT FOR "BAM BAM": Elliott "Bam Bam" Sadler looks to defend his five-time Bristol Motor Speedway Food City Race Night Wii Boxing Championships at the track on Friday night. Undefeated, Sadler will go for his sixth championship title on Friday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m. ET. For more information, visit www.bristolmotorspeedway.com.

#TAKEMETO FAN OPPORTUNITY: Sadler announced last week that he will provide fans with 11 chances throughout the 2014 Nationwide Series season to be his guest at races. Prompted by Sadler, fans will have the chance to reply back via social media with the phrase #takemeto (race track) for the chance to win two pit/garage passes and a meet and greet during the race weekend. For more information, visit www.onemainracing.com.

RACE INFO: The Drive To Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway will be on ESPN at 2:00 p.m. ET, on Saturday, March 15, as well as PRN and SIRIUSXM 90.

BRANCH DECAL PROGRAM: For each race that OneMain Financial is the primary sponsor on the No. 11 Toyota, two branches will be highlighted on Sadler's rear quarter panels. The branches selected for Bristol are No. 531 in Princeton, WV, and No. 051 in Logan, WV.

THINK PINK: The OneMain Financial driver will sport pink Oakley driving shoes throughout the entire Nationwide Series season to show support for breast cancer awareness and honor his mom, Bell. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and is now a survivor. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on his race-worn shoes throughout the season, with proceeds going toward breast cancer research and education.
