Elliott Sadler's pit-crew pocketed its second victory in as many weeks by winning the McDonald's Drive-Thru Pit Championship fuelled by POWERade in Sunday's Dodge/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. The #38 crew also took top honours the week before at Michigan International Speedway.

The back-to-back victories not only doubled the crew's prize money total to $40,000, but significantly closed the gap in the McDonald's/POWERade season point standings and the chase for the $200,000 champion's bonus. The team gained 16 points on the leading #8 crew of Dale Earnhardt Jr and, after 16 of 36 Cup races, has 590 points, only twelve behind Earnhardt's crew. Kurt Busch's crew is third with 553 points.

During Sunday's road-race on the twisting eleven-turn, 1.99-mile circuit, Sadler's M&M's Ford spent the least amount of time on pit road - 104.331secs. Jeff Burton's Roush Racing Ford was second with a time of 105.277 and Michael Waltrip's NAPA Chevy was third at 108.526.

"Two-in-a-row is pretty stout," said #38 crew chief Todd Parrott, "These guys are working their hardest. I am real excited for this team, and am speaking on behalf of Elliott as well. We would not have the finishes we've had without the help of the pit crew. How cool is that!"

Sadler's over-the-wall crew consists of: Darryl Lockyer, Kevin Hall, Dave Smith, Lance Hanna, Rodney Fetters, Preston Cordell and Jay Thompson.
