JUST THE STATS: After 23 races in the 2014 season, Sadler is currently in fourth place in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, 42 points back from the lead. The Emporia, Va., native has one win, one pole award, five top-five and 16 top-10 finishes.

LAST RACE: BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY: Sadler and the No. 11 team qualifiedfifth last week at Bristol Motor Speedway, and when the green flag waved, Sadler lead the field for 27 laps. The evening drastically went down hill when a lapped car spun in front of Sadler and slid down the track. The lapped car collided with the No.11 Toyota, who was running third at the time. The damage was significant on the front right side of the car. The team tried to repair the car quickly and send Sadler back out to run more laps, but after multiple attempts the team had to finally bring the car behind the wall and call it a day. Sadler finished 29th.

ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES: "At this moment, we have exactly ten races left on the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule. This past weekend, running up front, I thought for sure this was our weekend to bring home a strong finish and start to pull away from the top drivers in the championship point standings. Unfortunately, luck just wasn't on our side Friday night. Now a few more points back from where we wanted to be, we only have one option, and that is to capitalize on every opportunity we get in the remaining races and make it a real battle for the championship."
