2014 Road America: Elliott Sadler NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

LEFT AND RIGHT TURNS: Elliott Sadler and the No. 11 OneMain Financial team head to Road America for the first road course race of the season to compete around the four-mile, 14-turn road circuit in Elkhart Lake, WI. In three NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at Road America, Sadler has recorded one top-five and two top-10 finishes.

JUST THE STATS: After 13 races in the 2014 season, Sadler is currently in second place in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, 14 points back from the lead. The Emporia, Va., native has one win, one pole award, five top-five and nine top-10 finishes.

DISAPPOINTING MICHIGAN RACE: Last week, Sadler and the No. 11 OneMain Financial team experienced bad luck toward the end of the race at Michigan International Speedway. Running in second place, a food wrapper landed on the grill of the race car with 25 laps to go. The engine began to overheat, forcing Sadler to make an unscheduled stop. Restarting in the 23rd position, Sadler was able to pick off a few spots to finish 17th. Sadler and the No. 11 OneMain Financial team are ready and determined to move on and make up for lost ground at Road America.

ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES: "I really like racing at Road America. I enjoy the opportunity to get away from the same oval racing each weekend and challenge myself on a road course. It's fun to go through the gears, slide into the turns and turn right, which we rarely do during the season. People ask me, 'What is the best road course advice I've received?' My answer? You have to stay on the track. I was told that simple line early in my career, but it makes perfect sense. Be smart, stay out of potential trouble situations, stay on the track and you'll have the best chance to compete for the win on a road course. I'm really looking forward to this race weekend, and I hope my road course experience will shine on Saturday afternoon."

AUTOGRAPH SESSION: Fans will have the opportunity to meet Sadler on Friday, June 20th at 4:00 PM local time. Sadler will be signing autographs with other Nationwide Series drivers in front of the Media Center at Road America.

RACE INFO: The Gardner Denver 200 at Road America will be on ABC at 2:45 p.m. ET, on Saturday, June 21st, as well as MRN 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 Wisconsin are No. 146 in Beaver Dam, WI, and No. 020 in Greenfield, WI.

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.
