Sadler Steps Down

STATESVILLE, N.C. – Hermie Sadler has officially resigned as driver of the No. 66 Peak Performance Motorsports Ford effective immediately. Sadler has attempted to qualify for all 14 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series events this season, successfully making eight races. The No. 66 currently stands 40th in the owners' points.

Sadler, a veteran racer of 13 years in NASCAR's top three series, agrees that the split is amicable and is the right decision for all involved parties.

"I appreciate the opportunity given to me at Peak Performance Motorsports, but I feel at this time it is best that I step aside and allow the team to search for the combination that will help it improve," stated Sadler.

Team owner Jeff Stec will make announcement of the team’s intentions for the race at Pocono later this week.

"We know that Hermie gave us his best effort each week and we appreciate what he has done for the team," Stec said. "Peak Performance Motorsports has been proud to associate itself with Hermie and we wish him all the best."
