Sadler To Drive Full Time For KHI In Nationwide Series

[1]Elliott Sadler has signed a deal with Kevin Harvick Inc to drive for the team full time in the Nationwide Series in 2011, according to SpeedwayMedia.com [2]. A press conference has been scheduled to announce the signing today.

KHI recently announced that Rheem Manufacturing extended its relationship with KHI [3], and that Menards signed a deal with KHI to sponsor the No. 33 next season. Under the terms of the deals, Rheem will appear on the car for 22 races, while Menards will appear on the car for 12 races.

At this time, drivers Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Paul Menard, and Austin Dillon are slated to drive the No. 33 next season. So, it is likely that Sadler will drive a second KHI Chevy next season, but that is purely speculation at this point.

Sadler competed for KHI, which recently announced it would merge its Nationwide Series program with Richard Childress Racing’s N’wide program [4], earler this season, and won a Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono with the team.
