Primary sponsor to stick with Elliott Sadler
OneMain Financial returns for fourth year with driver

Elliott Sadler will once again drive the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in the NASCAR Nationwide Series next year. And once again, OneMain Financial will serve as the primary sponsor of his car.

The team announced the agreement Monday. OneMain Financial has supported Sadler for the past three years.
 
"I'm honored for the opportunity to drive for OneMain Financial again in 2014,” said Sadler. “It's such a privilege to be teamed with an organization that cares as much about teamwork as I do. I am looking forward to working with Coach Joe Gibbs and the JGR organization again this upcoming season. We have some unfinished business and will work to bring home a championship in 2014 for this team, our sponsors and JGR."
 
Sadler finished fourth in the Nationwide Series standings this year; he and Justin Allgaier both finished with 1,090 points, but Sadler owned the tiebreaker. In 33 starts, he had nine top-fives and 20 top-10s during his third consecutive season as a full-time Nationwide Series competitor.
 
In 230 career Nationwide starts, Sadler has nine wins, 55 top-fives and 106 top-10s. He also has 435 career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts -- including five this year, four as a substitute driver for Brian Vickers -- and three wins in the premier series.
 
OneMain Financial will also continue to have associate sponsorship in the two additional JGR entries.
 
"We are excited to continue our relationship with Elliott Sadler for the fourth straight year," said Mary McDowell, president and CEO of OneMain Financial. "He truly is a great ambassador for our company and our brand. We are also thrilled to once again partner with Joe Gibbs Racing for another successful season on and off the track as we continue to leverage this platform to grow our brand and our business in 2014."
