SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Elliott Sadler and Danica Patrick both enter Saturday's Kentucky 300 optimistic - just for different reasons.
Sadler finished ninth in his previous trip to Kentucky Speedway, his second top-10 in as many starts here. He believes those performances can help him begin erasing a nine-point deficit to Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and reclaim the NASCAR Nationwide Series lead he held the previous 14 weeks.
Patrick is eager to start a new chapter with crew chief Ryan Pemberton after spending much of her Nationwide career with Tony Eury Jr., who left JR Motorsports on Monday. She finished 12th here in June and feels she can do better the second time around.
Saturday will mark the first fall date for the 1.5-mile oval, where the Nationwide Series has top billing.
