This week: It's official -- Sadler is moving to Evernham Motorsports as driver of the No. 19 Dodge Charger. Sadler will make his first start in his new ride this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. "It's truly an honor to drive for Dodge and Ray Evernham and be part of this team," said Sadler, who spent Wednesday at Kentucky Speedway testing his new ride.
Last week: Sadler's seventh-place finish at Watkins Glen, after recovering from an early spin, was a milestone for him -- the New York road course was the only track on the Nextel Cup circuit where he had not posted a top-10 finish in his career. "It's the same strategy we used at Sears Point," said Sadler. "That was one of the best cars I've had on a road course, and it was fun."
Etc.: Rookie David Gilliland will replace Sadler in the No. 38 Ford. Gilliland spent Tuesday and Wednesday testing the 38 car with Todd Parrott, who moved back to Robert Yates Racing last week. Parrott will be the crew chief on the 38 car. "It's just a great opportunity," said Gilliland, who will make his first Nextel Cup start at Michigan.
