Elliott Sadler, who retired from full-time racing this past year, will bring a veteran approach to Kaulig Racing.

“Getting Elliott help us out in the No. 10 car is going to be a major help for people,” said Haley. “It’s pretty cool having him on one end because he can help us improve however its awful on the opposite end as he’ll probably kick ass (laughing).

Sadler currently has 13 Xfinity Series wins and three Cup wins to his charge, also is anticipating going for a more in his home track.
