Sadler To Join RFR In NXS In 2015
Elliott Sadler is leaving Joe Gibbs Racing to join Roush Fenway Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2015, the team announced.
Sadler will take his OneMain Financial sponsorship with him to RFR. He will drive the No. 1 RFR Ford Mustang.
OneMain began sponsoring Sadler in 2011, when he returned to the Nationwide Series driving for Kevin Harvick Inc. OneMain was also a RFR sponsor in the series from 2008 to 2010.
It is an honor to remain with OneMain Financial next year. Their commitment to teamwork and excellence carries throughout the organization and extends to the racing program. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to race under the OneMain Financial banner and team up with Roush Fenway Racing to compete for the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship in 2015.
Steve Newmark, president of RFR, said:
It’s great to have OneMain Financial back on board. They are a first-class organization from top to bottom, a leader in their field and one of the most respected organizations in their industry. We enjoyed a great partnership in the past, and we look forward to reigniting that relationship moving forward next season. We are also very excited about what Elliott Sadler brings to our driver lineup. He is a seasoned veteran and a winner on the track. He brings a reputation as a fierce competitor, and I know that our entire organization, and particularly his Roush Fenway teammates in the NASCAR Xfinity Series — Chris Buescher and Ryan Reed — will benefit from his experience next season.
