 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Elliott Sadler has confirmed he will not be returning to Richard Childress Racing next season.
The Nationwide Series points leader doesn't think his impending departure will hurt his chances at winning the championship.
Sadler goes into Friday night's Nationwide race at Richmond International Raceway with a 12-point lead over defending champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with nine races left in the season. He shed little insight into why he's leaving RCR except that ``sometimes the stars just don't line up.''
Sadler also said he has no deal locked up yet for next year, and is exploring both Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series rides. He's believed to be close to a deal to drive one of the Nationwide entries at Joe Gibbs Racing next season.
