Elliott Sadler is said to be close to working out a deal that would put him behind the wheel of a Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in the Nationwide Series in 2013, according to NASCAR.com.
Sadler, the current N’wide points leader, drives for Richard Childress Racing, which took over Kevin Harvick’s Kevin Harvick Inc team when that team shut down at the end of last season.
Sadler said earlier this year he wouldn’t be back in the No. 2 Chevy.
He has also said he would also like to get back into the Sprint Cup Series, where he has three wins, as soon as possible.
Rumor has it that Sadler is currently considering three teams, one of which is JGR. The JGR deal is said to be for a full time ride in 2013, with the possibility of a full time Sprint Cup ride in 2014, if sponsorship can be found.
