Since then, Sadler has been close so many times, but his No. 1 Chevrolet just hasn’t been able to get past that proverbial finish line first. Take the two races at the Daytona International Speedway this year as prime examples. Back…

5 Favorites For Saturday’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

With Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch both not being on the NASCAR XFINITY Series entry-list for this weekend’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) it opens up the door for someone else to contend this weekend in Fontana. Since 2008, Busch and Larson have combined to win eight of the 12 races on the D-Shaped, 2-mile California oval. Throw in Kevin Harvick’s win in 2015, and that’s three stars off the list. Last weeks winner Brad Keselowski isn’t entered either. That means we could be treated to a first…

Late Cautions Help Sadler, Elliott With Good Finishes

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – For most of the PowersharesQQQ 300, Chase Elliott and Elliott Sadler looked to be among the drivers to beat in the NASCAR XFINITY Series season opener. Unfortunately for them, it appeared that their shots of winning went out of the window when they were penalized for locking bumpers.
