Elliott Sadler leaving RCR

Elliott Sadler, the Nationwide Series points leader, won’t return to Richard Childress Racing next season.

Team owner Richard Childress told SiriusXM’s NASCAR channel Sunday that Sadler has decided to leave the organization. “I think he’s done gone somewhere else," Childress said. “We’re disappointed. He’s had the best season. We don’t know what else we could have done."

Joe Gibbs Racing, the most likely destination if Sadler wants to remain in a top-tier Nationwide ride, has no deal to announce with Sadler, a JGR spokesman said.
