Sadler to run new Dodge motor at Indy

Elliott Sadler will run the new Dodge R6P8 engine for the first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sadler finished fourth last year in the Allstate 400 at The Brickyard with the previous Dodge engine. Sadler is tied with Tony Stewart for the longest active DNF streak (42 races) of drivers that have competed in every race. Regan Smith is at 51 races, but has not competed in every race during that span. Says Sadler, "This year I’m going to be racing the new Dodge R6 engine there, so I really feel like we are going to be fast and racing for a chance to win at the end. This is the first time that we’re running that engine in the #19 this year so I guess you could say I’m pretty optimistic based on what we’ve seen from the #9 over the last couple weeks. “ RPM
