Race Reports

• For a 12th consecutive week, Elliott Sadler leads the NASCAR Xfinity Series point standings. Following his Stage Two win at Michigan, the veteran driver has now stockpiled four bonus points for the playoffs.

• In 14 NXS starts at Iowa Speedway, Sadler has one win (August 2012), seven top-five and 13 top-10 finishes with three pole awards.

• Sadler’s average finish at the .875-mile track is 5.9.

• On short tracks this season, Sadler has two top-five finishes, claiming third at Richmond and fourth at Bristol. The Virginia native also led 30 laps among those two events.

Quote from Elliott Sadler: "I always look forward to Iowa – it’s one of my stronger tracks and it’s always a fun and challenging race. We had a rocket of a car last year, just a little bit of bad luck. I’m confident my guys will unload another fast Chevrolet and perform again this weekend. This is a track where I know we can win."
