NASCAR America: Sadler happy fans got to see honest side of Dale Jr.

Elliott Sadler looks back at the impact Dale Earnhardt Jr had on his career and his life and what the future holds for Dale Jr.

Veteran NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler has known Dale Earnhardt Jr. for almost his entire life.

The lifelong friendship led to Junior bringing Sadler to JR Motorsports a few years back to race in the Xfinity Series.

But Junior isn’t Sadler’s boss, per se. He’s more like a partner – which goes back to their friendship.

Sadler talked on Wednesday’s NASCAR America about his long friendship with Junior, what Junior has done and meant to Sadler, and Sadler’s thoughts about one of his best friends’ retirement.
