Elliott Sadler will be subbing for Brian Vickers in the No 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota for the last four races of the season, MWR announced on Thursday.

Sadler replaces Brian Vickers who informed MWR on Oct. 14 that he would be unavailable for the remainder of the season due to anti-coagulation medications he will be taking to treat a small blood clot in his right leg.

Doctors have told Vickers he will be on the medication at least two months.

Sadler drives for Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, where he has 18 top-tens and nine top-fives this season.
