Elliott Sadler’s Career Tribute Paint Scheme for Final NASCAR Race

Elliott Sadler’s Career Tribute Paint Scheme for Final NASCAR Race

Kaulig Racing and partner Nutrien Ag Solutions’ Surprise

Veteran driver Elliott Sadler will close out his 24-year NASCAR career behind the wheel of a well-known Sadler family paint scheme redesigned by team Kaulig Racing and partner Nutrien Ag Solutions, honoring his racing legacy. The tribute look that Sadler’s No. 10 Chevrolet will sport in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, September 14 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was designed to resemble his first stockcar paint scheme from 1993. 



“I thought all of the surprises in my driving career had come to an end, until Kaulig Racing showed me my first ever Late Model paint scheme on the No. 10 car this weekend for what will be my final race of the year,” Sadler commented. “I’m so thankful to Nutrien Ag Solutions for allowing me to drive this car. This is the perfect paint scheme for me, personally, this weekend. It’s going to be a lot of fun to strap in one last time at a fast place like Las Vegas Motor Speedway.”

To make the weekend even more complete, Kaulig Racing’s team president Chris Rice will serve as Sadler’s crew chief, just as he did in the early 1990’s when the duo claimed the South Boston Speedway track champion title in 1995, along with multiple victories beginning in 1993.

“It’s so awesome to have Nutrien Ag Solutions allow us and join us in running this special paint scheme from Elliott’s original stockcar days,” Rice expressed. “This paint scheme means so much to not only Elliott, but to his parents Herman and Bell, his family, myself, and various other fans throughout his career. We won tons of races with this paint scheme, and thanks to Nutrien Ag Solutions, Matt Kaulig and all of those at Kaulig Racing, we have the opportunity to go out and try to win one more.”

Although Nutrien Ag Solutions and Sadler have only been partnered together since 2018, the roots of their relationship have grown just as deep as those between farming and racing.

“Elliott has been a great partner to us,” said Brent Smith, Vice President of Marketing + Innovation at Nutrien Ag Solutions. “Our growers and team here have followed his career, and we’re proud to stand with him as he leads the field on the track for the last time. We look forward to continuing our relationship as he fully embraces the next stage of his life and career.”



To catch Sadler’s final NASCAR race and his tribute Chevrolet on track, tune in to NBCSN at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, September 14.

With the dirt races in the mirror, current ARCA Menards Series Points leader Michael Self (No. 25 Sinclair Oil Toyota) turns back to short-track asphalt racing for the ARCA Menards Series 107th race at the abrasive, high-banked and high-speed half-mile Salem Speedway. This will be Self’s third start at Salem. His win at the track came during the spring earlier this year.

“I’ve only run Salem twice, but I think it’s one of my most favorite short tracks that I’ve ever raced at. The track has as much character as anywhere with it’s ultra-abrasive and bumpy surface, it’s a handful to drive just to begin with. It always takes a few laps to get re-acclimated to Salem just because it’s so much rougher than anywhere else we go, but that kind of makes it fun. You really have to be on top of your game both mentally and physically. We had a phenomenal Sinclair Oil Toyota here in the Spring, and even though we’re bringing the same car back, it’s going to be warmer and track conditions will probably be different this time around so I’m sure we’ll have some adaptation and work to do, but I’m looking forward to getting back on this track under the lights.” Michael Self

Back-To-Back Ford Wins at IMS

Back-To-Back Ford Wins at Indianapolis Motor Speedway #NASCAR

Happy Harvick Kisses the Bricks


Kevin Harvick was the big winner at Indianapolis Motor Speedway - #nascar

Kevin Harvick was the big winner at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, winning the Brickyard 400. This was Harvick’s third win of the season and Stewart-Haas Racing’s 54th overall Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win. In addition, this marked Ford’s second win in a row at the Brickyard (Brad Keselowski 2018).

“Congratulations Kevin, Tony, Gene, and the No. 4 crew” #nascar


“Congratulations Kevin, Tony, Gene, and the No. 4 crew” said Doug Yates, President and CEO of Roush Yates Engines. “Our Ford Performance teams were fast in qualifying as Kevin, Paul, Clint, and Joey qualified 1 through 4. To see the cars and drivers perform at the highest level in the sport is a testament to the team’s effort and determination to win. It’s special to be able to kiss the bricks two years in the row and congratulations to our Ford drivers advancing to this year’s playoffs.”

#NASCAR Driver Kevin Harvick and team Kiss the Bricks at Indy!!!


One of the world’s iconic racetracks and crown-jewel events in the sport proved to be the perfect match for Harvick, as he came out strong during Sunday morning’s qualifying, to secure the pole with a 48.448 second run at 185.766 mph.

Harvick led 119 laps (297.5 miles) of the 160-lap race and scored the Stage 2 win on his way to crossing the bricks to capture the checkered flag. #NASCAR


Harvick led 119 laps (297.5 miles) of the 160-lap race and scored the Stage 2 win on his way to crossing the bricks to capture the checkered flag. This marked Harvick’s second career win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Stage 1 winner, Logano, came in second, making it a 1-2 finish for Ford Performance.

Kevin Harvick captures the checkered flag - #nascar


“Well, I know how much it means to everybody on our Mobil 1 Ford Mustang team,” commented Harvick in Victory Lane. “Just got to thank Busch Beer, Jimmy John's, Hunt Brother, Haas Automation, everybody at Stewart Haas Racing, all these guys that make this car go around, I know how much this means to really everybody, and this is a great engine package that Roush Yates has been to Victory Lane twice now, once at Michigan and the same engine here. That's a huge credit to those guys and Mobil 1 for everything that they put under this car. Just can't thank everybody enough. This is awesome.”



Six Ford Mustangs finished in the top-10 of the Brickyard 400. Following Harvick and Logano, was Stewart-Haas Racing teammate, Clint Bowyer P5, Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney P7, Roush Fenway’s Ryan Newman P8, and the Wood Brother’s Paul Menard in P10.

Three Top-Five Finishes For JR Motorsports

Three Top-Five Finishes For JR Motorsports

  • Race 25 of 33: Indiana 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • Track Specs: 2.5-mile oval / 100 laps
  • Weather: Partly cloudy; 78 degrees
    • Allgaier's Finish: 2nd
    • Gragson's Finish: 3rd
    • Burton's Finish: 4th
    • Annett's Finish: 12th

Justin Allgaier and the No. 7 Suave Men team came close to getting back-to-back wins at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, finishing second in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race after leading 24 laps. The result was Allgaier’s fourth runner-up finish of the season. The Illinois native remains fourth in the NXS point standings as the series heads into the final race of the regular season next week.

“Hats off to our guys. Our Suave Men Camaro was on rails, especially on the long run. We had a couple late-race restarts that just didn’t go our way and unfortunately that put us a little behind. Hats off to everybody at JR Motorsports. To have three cars in the top five is huge. Man, you don’t realize what this place means to you until you come that close to kissing those bricks again. We’ll go on to next week and finish out this regular season strong and hopefully go into the playoffs carrying this momentum on.”
Noah Gragson, driver of the No. 9 Switch Chevrolet Camaro, scored his seventh top-five finish of the 2019 season on Saturday afternoon in the NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after taking the checkered flag in the third position. With the result, Gragson has scored 13 top-10s in the last 15 NXS races and has improved to an average finish of 7.0 over that same stretch.

“Today was a really good day for this Switch Chevrolet and for JRM as a whole. To have three cars in the top five is pretty awesome and I am incredibly thankful for all of the hard work each and every person at JRM is putting in to these cars each week. We battled hard today and were able to come away with another really strong run. Hopefully we can keep this momentum going next week in Vegas and carry it on through to the start of the playoffs.”

With a stout fourth-place finish, Jeb Burton claimed his season-best finish in Saturday’s Indiana 250 for the Xfinity Series machines at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Burton spent the bulk of the day running among the top five with the No. 8 State Water Heaters machine, even racing as high as second for a time. The team put together a solid performance in all facets of the race to bring home its sixth top five and 17th top 10 of the season.

“Really proud of the effort today from our State Water Heaters group. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) did a great job keeping up with the race car and making the right adjustments. We’ve been working better and better together every race. We’ve only ran five races this year and we finished top five in two of them. Hopefully we can get us a win in my next races at Texas or Miami. We got a good thing going and I’m thankful for the opportunity.”

With four laps remaining in Saturday’s Indiana 250 for NASCAR Xfinity Series machines at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Michael Annett was in the middle of a late-race hornet’s nest in his No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet. Running as high as seventh with three laps remaining, the Iowa native fell victim to a pack of his opponents down the long backstretch on the 2.5-mile oval and eventually came home in 12th position at the end of the 100-lap event.

“We were in a good position there at the end and we just got mobbed. A group of cars came up on us and they had all the momentum. Our Pilot Flying J Chevrolet was really fast at times and we could get awesome runs all day, but it is just so hard to finish them and even harder to defend against a line of cars once they get past the rear bumper. It was a good day for us, overall, but it could have been a lot better if not for that last bit of the race.”

Indianapolis Motor Speedway is considered one of the most prestigious and historic tracks in American racing history. 

Kyle Busch Has Clinched His 2nd  Consecutive Regular Season Championship
Kyle Busch Has Clinched His 2nd Consecutive Regular Season Championship

Last Cup Race to Make the Playoffs: There have been twenty-five (25) race trophies awarded this season – twenty-five (25) opportunities to lock in a Playoff berth – but for the four drivers on the bubble, the last two Playoff positions will depend on their outing in Sunday’s Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard powered by Florida Georgia Line at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on NBC, IMS and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).


Veteran Clint Bowyer in fifteenth (15th) holds an eight-point edge on Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Daniel Suarez and Roush Fenway Racing driver Ryan Newman, who are tied in points. Suarez, however, holds the tiebreaker and is currently slotted into the sixteenth (16th) and final Playoff position entering the race while Newman is on the outside in seventeenth (17th.)

Seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson is ranked eighteenth (18th) – 18 points behind Suarez and Newman and 26 points behind Bowyer.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway is considered one of the most prestigious and historic tracks in American racing history.

But there is also the possibility that a driver ranked below this foursome could earn one of those Playoff spots with a victory Sunday – which would leave room for only one of them to advance to the postseason on points.

Of the four still eligible to point their way in – Johnson holds a clear statistical advantage. Only NASCAR Hall of Famer and former Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon has won more Indianapolis races (five) than Johnson’s four. And Newman is the only other driver among this Playoff-hopeful quartet with a victory at Indianapolis – winning the 2013 race from the pole position.

In order of their current ranking, Bowyer has three top-five and four top-10 finishes in 13 Indianapolis starts, including a fifth place last year when he tied Denny Hamlin with a race-best 37 laps led.

Suarez has finishes of seventh and 18th in two starts at Indianapolis but has never led a lap.

Newman has had three top-five and five top-10 finishes in 18 career starts, including a third place in 2017. He’s finished in the top 10 in his last two Indianapolis starts, adding in a 10th-place result last year.

With his four Brickyard trophies, Johnson is not only best among those still vying for a Playoff positions but also best in Sunday’s field. He has six top-five and seven top-10 finishes in 17 starts. He won there four times in a seven-year span between 2006-2012, was runner-up in 2013 and then third in 2016. He was 16th last year.

Last week Bowyer bested the four drivers with a sixth-place finish at Darlington – good enough to move him up from 17th in the standings to a Playoff-eligible 15th. His SHR teammate Suarez was 11th at Darlington, securing him that 16th-place designation while Newman was 23rd Saturday night, putting him 17th in the Playoff standings – one spot out of the postseason.

Johnson finished 16th but earned some important stage points. He was running fourth when he was collected in a multi-car accident on Lap 276 of the 367-lap race.

Of note - Johnson has never missed the Playoffs in the 15 years the postseason has been in place for the Monster Energy Series.

And a historical note that Newman and Johnson will try to overcome…in the most recent two seasons, no driver raced into the Playoffs by virtue of his finish in the regular season finale.

FREE 50th Anniversary Bash on May 4 - Dover International Speedway

FREE 50th Anniversary Bash on May 4 - Dover International Speedway

Featuring Petty, Allison, Johnson, Waltrip, Helton

The #NASCAR King - Richard Petty


Legendary NASCAR drivers and musical stars will appear on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza as part of Dover International Speedway’s FREE 50th Anniversary Bash for fans on Saturday afternoon.

John Rich (Big & Rich), who shot to stardom with the hit singles “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” and “Comin’ to Your City,” will perform with Maryland native Sam Grow, a rising country music star, at the 50th Anniversary Bash, one of the entertainment centerpieces for the Monster Mile’s May 3-5 NASCAR tripleheader weekend. Cowboy Troy, who often makes tour appearances with Big & Rich, will also hit the stage.

In addition, NASCAR champions Richard Petty, Bobby Allison, Jimmie Johnson and Darrell Waltrip, along with William Byron and Mike Joy, as well as longtime NASCAR executive Mike Helton and Dover Motorsports, Inc. President and CEO Denis McGlynn are among some of the special guests scheduled to make appearances on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza. The appearances will be hosted by Riki Rachtman and MRN’s and SiriusXM’s Mike Bagley.

The 50th Anniversary Bash runs from 3-7 p.m. on Saturday following the “Allied Steel Buildings 200” NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash race (1:30 p.m. Fox Sports 1). The Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza, located in the grassy area near the Monster Monument, is the home for the track’s free pre-race concerts and NASCAR driver and personality question-and-answers sessions throughout the Monster Mile’s event weekends.

Dover’s traditional fireworks display will follow the Bash at approximately 9 p.m.

The complete appearance schedule for the 50th Anniversary Bash on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza on Saturday is as follows:
  • 3 p.m. Riki Rachtman welcomes fans

  • 5:30 p.m. Sam Grow, John Rich and Cowboy Troy perform

Concession stands surrounding the Xfinity Stage will remain open during the event, including Dover Downs Hotel & Casino’s Frankie’s Monster Mile Café, offering food and drink specials. As part of the Speedway’s partnership with SoDel Concepts, a restaurant group based in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, the Monster Mile designed a special concession menu featuring many First State favorites, including the following:
  • Sticky Icky Fried Rice Bowl: Four-time award winning fried chicken morsels, shaved vegetables, fried egg and special sauce.
  • The Ricky Bobby: Shake and bake fried chicken, hand-blended dry seasonings, cole slaw, buttermilk aioli and potato roll.
  • Slingshot Scrapple Grilled Cheese: Scrapple, American cheese, fried egg and white bread.
  • Jimmie Jam: Hand-crafted griddled scrapple, foot long hot dog, fresh lobster and apple slaw.

Draft beer, such as Dover International Speedway’s 50th Anniversary “Splash & Go Lager,” brewed in collaboration with Dover, Delaware-based Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company, will be available for purchase. Other breweries represented during the Bash include Mispillion River Brewing and Blue Earl Brewery, all of which are part of Delaware on Tap, the Delaware Tourism Office’s smartphone application guide to the state’s craft beverage makers and a Speedway partner.

“This year, as we celebrate our 50th anniversary, there’s more for fans to do on the Speedway grounds than ever before,” said Dover International Speedway President and CEO Mike Tatoian. “This is one way we can say thank you to our fans for their loyalty to the Monster Mile. We hope all our guests will stop by the 50th Anniversary Bash on Saturday to hear from legendary drivers, enjoy our tasty food offerings and enjoy the entertainment on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza.”



The 50th Anniversary Bash is just part of Dover’s planned celebrations during the May 3-5 NASCAR tripleheader weekend. In addition to the special gold Monster trophies given to the race winners and free 1:64-scale Dover diecast cars to the first 15,000 guests on Sunday, fans can also enjoy multiple free performances by the famous Harlem Globetrotters in the 8-acre FanZone (Sunday), a free Charlie Daniels Band concert on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza (Sunday), as well as Micro Wrestling Federation matches (Saturday and Sunday), Del Rods Car Club car shows (Saturday and Sunday), a Winston Cup Mobile Museum display (all weekend), on-site NASCAR and sports betting (Sunday) and much more.

The May 3-5 NASCAR tripleheader weekend also includes the “JEGS 200” NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on May 3 and the “Gander RV 400” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on May 5.

The Monster Mile’s Oct. 4-6 NASCAR tripleheader weekend features the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race on Friday, Oct. 4, the NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff race on Saturday, Oct. 5 and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoff race on Sunday, Oct. 6. The Oct. 6, 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoff race will be the 100th NASCAR Cup Series race in track history. Dover International Speedway will be the 10th track in the nation to host 100 NASCAR Cup Series races.
