Elliott Sadler Leaving Richard Childress Racing, Going To Joe Gibbs Racing?

Elliott Sadler, driver of the No.2 One Main Financial Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing (RCR) in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) could be leaving RCR at the end of the 2012 season.

Richard Childress, owner of RCR said that Sadler has not resigned with RCR for 2013 and rumor has it that he may be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing.

If the rumor is true, Sadler could head to JGR and run a full NNS schedule and a part time Cup Series schedule for JGR in a fourth car. If that is the case, it is pretty much guaranteed that Joey Logano will not be back with JGR in 2013.

Sadler is currently leading the points in the NNS Series and is looking to take home the Nationwide Championship. He is 12 points ahead of Roush Fenway driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
