This week: After finishing second in all three segments of the All-Star Challenge in 2005, Sadler will have to earn his way back into the event this year. "It's disappointing that we are not qualified for the All-Star race, but I'm looking forward to running the Open, trying to get a win there and then run in the All-Star race," says Sadler. "Hopefully I will be one of the guys to drive the most laps on Saturday night."
Last week: Sadler began the evening at Darlington with high hopes after qualifying sixth. But instead it turned out to a long night as he finished 29th. Sadler said the car was extremely loose in the corners and tight while traveling through the center of the turns. And despite numerous adjustments, the problem was never solved.
Etc.: Sadler believes this weekend is a key one because "it gives us and all the teams a week off from points racing, a week to just go out there and race and maybe see what you have for the Coca-Cola 600. I think we'll get to see more this weekend who the big players are going to be for next weekend's race." Go back to the top
