Historic Truck Win For Sadler

56800Jpg
Elliott Sadler started from the pole and ended up in the same spot with his win in Saturday's first-ever NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Pocono Mountains 125 at Pocono Raceway.

Sadler scored the emotional win behind the wheel of the potent Kevin Harvick Inc. Chevrolet and outdistanced the field in the 50-lap sprint around the 2.5-mile triangular track.

The win was Sadler's first in the truck series and he became the 21st driver in NASCAR history to score victories in all three national series.

"You don’t know how much this means to me,” said Sadler in Victory Lane. “Pretty much the last lap, tears were in my eyes.

"This is a huge victory for me. ... I’m still here and I still want to race and be a part of this sport and win races."

It marked KHI's third consecutive series victory with Harvick winning two weeks ago at Gateway International Raceway and Ron Hornaday victorious last Friday night at O'Reilly Raceway Park.

Sadler had to hold off Kasey Kahne in a green-white-checkered finish to pick up the checkered flag in front of a solid crowd on a picture perfect Saturday afternoon.

Kahne wheeled his Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota to a second place finish and was not able to run down Sadler in the closing overtime laps.

Matt Crafton, Aric Almirola and Justin Lofton rounded out the top five.

Mike Skinner, Austin Dillon, Timothy Peters, Denny Hamlin and Jason White completed the first ten finishers.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series now heads to Nashville Superspeedway next Saturday night.
