Elliott Sadler Makes XFINITY Series History with Award
Elliott Sadler has done it again. For the second straight year in a row, he was named the NMPA Most Popular Driver in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
“It’s unreal to be voted the NXS Most Popular Driver for a second year in a row,” Sadler said. “To win this award given by the fans is truly an honor. I’m so grateful for each and every fan who took time out of their day to vote — it’s humbling. I can’t thank NASCAR and my fans enough for honoring me with this award once again. This is incredible. I want to thank everyone who voted, my wife, Amanda, and our kids, and all of our sport’s loyal fan base.”
JR Motorsports has won the award the past six years, beginning with Danica Patrick in 2012, Regan Smith in 2013, Chase Elliott in 2014 and 2015, and now Sadler. They have won a total of eight times (Keselowski in 2008 and 2009).
Sadler has matched his popularity with success on-track, taking the runner-up spot in the standings for a second consecutive year in 2017 behind teammate William Byron.
