Elliott Sadler, OneMain Financial and JR. Motorsports have come to a multi-year extension agreement in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, as OneMain has committed to sponsor the No. 1 JRM Chevy 20 times in 2017 in a primary role.
Sadler currently leads the XFINITY Series points for 2016 as teams prepare for the first ever chase format in the series.
The announcement sets most 2017 puzzle pieces in place for JRM, as the prior announcement of William Byron‘s move to the XFINITY Series under the JRM banner means the team will maintain its status as a three-car effort full-time, with the No. 7 Brandt machine of Justin Allgaier also slated to compete.
This season, the team has fielded three cars every race, with Allgaier and Sadler joined by a rotating cast in the No. 88.
There are still questions to be asked of the organization’s 2017 plans, however, as during the team’s announcement, JRM also indicated a fourth part-time team will be assembled for select events. The team has not announced any driver for that team as of yet. This season, the fourth car has been the No. 5, which has been entered with Chase Elliott, Cole Custer and more.
Sadler has scored one win, seven top 5s and 19 top 10s in his 22 starts this season.
