-Elliott Sadler continues to lead the NASCAR Xfinity Series point standings by 52 markers over teammate William Byron.

-In only four NXS races at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, the Virginia native has finished all events within the top 10. Sadler’s highest finish at the road course is sixth (2013, 2015) with an average finish of 7.0.

-The OneMain Financial driver is one of only three current NXS regulars to have led multiple laps at the track.

Quote from Elliott Sadler: “Last weekend, we got a good look at what our roadcourse program will be like for these next couple of races. With the first road race under our belt, we now know what we can expect. We can really dial in on the handling of our OneMain Financial Chevrolet and our strategy. We had a fast car last weekend, just had a little bit of bad luck. I like Mid-Ohio—this weekend should be fun.”
