• In 15 NXS starts at Chicagoland, Sadler has claimed one win (2012), four top-five and nine top-10 finishes. Sadler has also led the most laps (158) of series regulars at the 1.5-mile paved track.

• In both his events at Chicagoland with JR Motorsports, Sadler finished third and has an average start of 5.0.

Quote from Elliott Sadler:

"I’m really proud of the runs this team has had over the last two years at Chicago. It gives us great confidence, especially with the strong runs we’ve also had all season this year – we’ve just had a bit of tough luck these last two races. This is one of the tracks where I have a previous win, so I know we can get it done. This team deserves to be celebrating all their hard work in Victory Lane once again."
