• Elliott Sadler and the No.11 Sport Clips team entered the weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with high hopes of a solid run and winning the second installment of the 2013 Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash program. • Starting the CNBC Prime’s ‘The Profit’ 200 from the ninth position, Sadler was immediately in the middle of three-wide racing as teams battled for position early in the race. Settling into seventh, Sadler reported to the team on lap 23 that he needed rear grip and the team began working on a plan for adjustments to the No. 11 Toyota. • Running in the seventh spot, Sadler was able to pit on lap 37 while under caution for two right-side tires, fuel and adjustments. The race restarted on lap 40 with Sadler in the third position. • Sadler slipped to fifth on lap 50, with all four Joe Gibbs Racing teams running in the top five. As Sadler slipped several more positions, he reported to the team that he was ‘way too loose.’ • As the race continued caution free, teams began making green-flag stops on lap 110 with the Sport Clips team bringing Sadler down pit road on lap 118 from the third position for four tires, fuel and another round of adjustments. • Several laps after the green-flag stops, the caution waved on lap 121 with the No. 11 Sport Clips team scored in the ninth position. Sadler was immediately told by the team to begin saving fuel in case the race was extended into a green-white-checker finish. The race restarted on lap 127 with Sadler scored fifth. • With the race back to green, Sadler again found himself in a tight three-wide battle. Making contact with a competitor while battling for position, Sadler was concerned he may have damage to the right side of his Toyota. Following a closer look, it appeared the No. 11 had minor damage, but it should not cause any problems. • With the race closing in on the scheduled 200 laps, the caution flag waved on lap 198 with Sadler in the fourth position. The team made the decision to stay out under the caution, saving fuel as the race was extended into its first attempt at a green-white-checker finish. The race restarted on lap 202, but was again slowed on the same lap without the field taking the white flag. The field was forced into a second attempt at a green-white-checker finish. The race restarted on lap 205 and Sadler moved into the third spot before the caution waved on lap 206. With the caution flag again being displayed before teams took the white flag, NASCAR would make their third and final attempt at a green-white-checker finish. • The final restart of the race came on lap 211 with Sadler running third. Unfortunately, the No. 11 Sport Clips team found themselves in the middle of three-wide racing and Sadler spun out on lap 211. With no caution, Sadler got his Toyota turned around and back on track. On the last lap, Sadler ran out of fuel and was able to coast across the finish line to finish the race 18th, the last car on the lead lap. • Joe Gibbs Racing led all 213 laps with Kyle Busch leading a race high 141 laps followed by Vickers with 63 laps and Matt Kenseth with nine laps. • Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers swept the top-two finishing positions followed by Austin Dillon, Brian Scott and Michael Annett. -Joe Gibbs Racing PR
