SPEEDWAY, IN: The NASCAR Nationwide Series, back for year two, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway hopes to put on another memorable event today. Last year’s contest ended with a controversial penalty call against Elliott Sadler, which will certainly change his mindset for this afternoon.

“Let me tell you, this is definitely a race that I have had in the back of my mind since last year. The last race at Indy was definitely a tough one to swallow, however, we are going to use that as fuel this season. We feel like a win was taken from us, and that will serve as motivation to get this OneMain Financial Toyota into Victory Lane (today) at Indianapolis Motor Speedway”, said Sadler.

One of the series’ young stars, Trevor Bayne, had a strong practice during yesterday’s sessions and is confident that his new bright pink Pillow Pets Mustang can back it up in the race.

“I didn’t know a rainbow bear could go so fast around a race track. Mike Kelley and those guys have built me my first new car for the whole seas and it is really fast. We are looking to get that race started and looking forward to qualifying. I think qualifying is very important here for track position. We are going to work on that and see if we can start and finish well.”

Today’s race is on ESPN and starts at 4:30 ET.
