Elliott Sadler returning to XFinity Series: 'I'm coming back'
Elliott Sadler's retirement was shorter than Jason Witten's.
Sadler, 43, announced Thursday he will return to the race track for two XFinity races this season with Kaulig Racing.
Sadler will drive the No. 10 Chevrolet Camaro SS for the XFinity race April 12 at Richmond Raceway and another Sept. 14 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Nutrien Ag Solutions will be his sponsor for both races.
Sadler, who has 13 wins in the XFinity series and three win in the NASCAR Cup Series, retired last season to spend more time with his family. He said if he returned to the track, it would be only if the "right opportunity" presented itself.
“I said I would only return to the racetrack if the right opportunity came along, and this is it,” Sadler said. “I’m thrilled to partner with Nutrien Ag Solutions and Kaulig Racing for these two races and team up with Ross Chastain behind the wheel of the No. 10 Chevy.
“I believe in the mission of Nutrien Ag Solutions, as they help farmers lead the field, and they wanted me to put my helmet back on to do the same at Richmond and Las Vegas.”
