Elliott Sadler and the No. 2 OneMain Financial team will unload Chassis No. 117 from Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Nationwide Series stable this weekend. This Chevrolet has been utilized in three previous races this season, with Sadler racing it to a 15th-place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July after he was black-flagged as the leader, a fifth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway in September and a pole award and third-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway in October. God Bless Texas … With nine starts at Texas Motor Speedway in the Nationwide Series, Sadler has earned two pole awards, three top-five and five top-10 finishes with 39 laps led at the 1.5-mile track. Sadler also brings NASCAR Sprint Cup Series experience at the Fort Worth, Texas-based track with 18 starts, earning one win in 2004, one pole award in 2010, one top-five and three top-10 finishes. He also made one appearance at the speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2010, where he started second and finished fifth. Rolling Three-Wide in Texas … OneMain Financial will be a triple-threat this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. In addition to the No. 2 OneMain Financial Chevrolet driven by points leader Sadler in the Nationwide Series, OneMain Financial will be on-board with teammate Kevin Harvick in the No. 33 Nationwide Series entry and on Friday night in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event with the No. 22 Chevrolet driven by Joey Coulter. Last Time By … In the first event at Texas Motor Speedway in April this season in April, Sadler and the No. 2 OneMain Financial team competed in the top-five for much of the race. Unfortunately, a strong vibration and an issue in the late stages of the race relegated the team to a 12th-place finish under the lights at TMS. Just The Stats … According to NASCAR’s 2012 Loop Data Season-to-Date statistics, Sadler leads the Nationwide Series in Average Mid-Race Position (6.5), Average Finishing Position (7.0),Average Running Position (7.0), Quality Passes (1,172), Percentage of Quality Passes (74.4), Laps in the Top 15 (5,194)and Percentage of Laps in the Top 15 (95.6). After 30 events in the Nationwide Series season, Sadler has earned four wins, four pole awards, 15 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes with 362 laps led. To the Point … Sadler remains on top of the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, six points ahead of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Race Rewind: Kansas Speedway … Sadler and the No. 2 OneMain Financial team battled varying fuel strategies and right-rear grip problems to finish fourth two weeks ago at Kansas Speedway. What are your thoughts on Texas Motor Speedway?  “We are coming off our last off-weekend of the season, so everyone on the OneMain Financial team is well-rested and as ready as ever to get to Texas Motor Speedway. We had a pretty good run there in the spring, but a bad vibration toward the end of the race hurt our chances. I’ve had success at Texas in the past, including a win in the Sprint Cup Series in 2004, so I’d love to add a Nationwide Series win to it this weekend. Every race, every point is important as we head into the final stretch, but we want that trophy and those cowboy hats in Victory Lane.”
