2014 Mid-Ohio: Elliott Sadler NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

ROUND TWO AT MID-OHIO: Elliott Sadler and the No. 11 OneMain Financial team travel to Lexington, Ohio this weekend to compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event on the 2.4 mile,15-turn road course at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. This will be the second year the track has hosted a Nationwide Series event. Sadler started 14th and finished sixth in the inaugural event in 2013.

JUST THE STATS: After 21 races in the 2014 season, Sadler is currently in third place in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, 13 points back from the lead. The Emporia, Va., native has one win, one pole award, five top-five and 15 top-10 finishes.

SPECIAL GUEST: This weekend, Sadler and the OneMain Financial team will have a special guest at the track. Through help with the Nationwide Children's Hospital, Sean Tibbs will be an honorary member of the No. 11 team on Saturday afternoon. Sean was brought to the Nationwide Children's Hospital ER with tiredness and a weird feeling in his arms in July 2011. After the standard battery of tests and blood work, Sean's family learned that he had leukemia. Sean spent 12 days in the hospital for treatment and over the course of the next year he went through chemo, bone marrow biopsies, and spinal taps. Sean began the maintenance phase of his treatment in late August of 2012. Although the start of this phase was rough for Sean, with medications that made him tired and impacted his liver functions, things eventually began to go as planned and Sean took an exciting Make-A-Wish trip to Disney in November. On January 22nd, Sean was scheduled for a routine spinal tap and chemo. During the blood work, Sean's doctors saw that his counts were not right and ordered a bone marrow biopsy to determine what was going on. When the results came back, Sean's family found out that his leukemia had returned. Sean had 15 weeks of intense treatment followed by a bone marrow transplant. Currently, Sean who is 10 years old, is off treatment and returns to Nationwide Children's Hospital for follow-up appointments regarding the bone marrow transplant. Sean will be on-site this weekend at Mid-Ohio and will spend time on Saturday with Sadler and the No. 11 OneMain Financial team.

ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES: "I'm excited to travel to Mid-Ohio this weekend for two main reasons. First, I'm ready to improve on my sixth-place finish from last year's inaugural Nationwide Series race. With one race now under my belt, I think we can be more aggressive and be a strong contender to win. The second reason why I'm looking forward to Mid-Ohio, is the special opportunity I get to have with my special guest, Sean Tibbs. Last year I was fortunate enough to share the day with Caden Bowers, who was also a patient champion from the Nationwide Children's Hospital. Sharing the day with Caden was one of those special days you never forget. I'm pumped to meet Sean and create some long lasting memories with him."

MEET SADLER: Fans will have the opportunity to meet Sadler on Friday, Aug 15th at 11:00 AM local time. Sadler will be signing autographs at the OneMain Financial branch located at 2164 Walker Lake Rd. Ontario, OH 44903.

RACE INFO: The Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course will be on ESPN at 2:45 p.m. ET, on Saturday, Aug 16th, 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 Mid-Ohio are No. 016 in Ontario, OH, and No. 052 in Delaware, OH.

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.
