Elliott Sadler and the No. 2 OneMain Financial team notched a seventh-place finish Saturday afternoon at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Beginning the F.W. Webb 200 from the seventh position, Sadler reported the OneMain Financial Chevrolet was tight coming to the gas off the turns. Debris brought out the first caution period of the day on lap 38, and crew chief Luke Lambert called for a two-tire pit stop to alleviate the tight-handling condition. The quick stop moved the team up four positions on the track, lining up the No. 2 Chevrolet fourth for the restart.

As the race continued, Sadler still battled a tight-handling condition and made several scheduled pit stops to alleviate the problem, falling back to 15th by lap 94. As the Richard Childress Racing driver worked his way to the ninth position, another caution slowed the field on lap 149. In a final attempt to help the tight-handling car, Lambert called Sadler down pit road for a final four-tire pit stop.

Restarting in the14th position on lap 154, the Emporia, Va., native began picking off positions and worked his way into eighth in 10 laps. Sadler continued to push to the front and moved the No. 2 Chevrolet into the seventh position, where he would cross the finish line, bringing the team's 13th top-10 finish of the season.

Sadler remains atop the Nationwide Series point standings, just three points ahead of RCR teammate Austin Dillon.

ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTE:

"We battled a pretty tight condition all day. The OneMain Financial guys never gave up, and we had great pit stops throughout the race. There is still so many races left in this season, and there is still a lot of work to do. I'm glad to have another chance next week at Chicagoland to win the Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash."
