Nationwide - Bristol - Race results

Now that he's remembered the way to victory lane, Elliott Sadler just can't seem to stop calling in - this time with a win in the Ford EcoBoost 300 at Bristol.
Elliott Sadler claimed his second win of 2012 (and his seventh series win in total) this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, after opting to stay out on old tyres during the final round of pit stops under caution with less than 40 laps to go before the finish. Sadler's pace was more than enough to see off a contingent of Sprint Cup regulars consisting of Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Earlier, Logano's lap of 15.448s (124.210mph) had been enough to put him on pole position for the Ford EcoBoost 300 by 0.132s ahead of Trevor Bayne, with leading Nationwide Series contenders Sadler and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. starting on the second row.

Morgan Shepherd and Derrike Cope failed to qualify for the race.
