NEWTON, Iowa — It isn’t how you start, but how you finish.
Sadler passed Justin Allgaier with 58 laps remaining and pulled away to win the U.S. Cellular 250 on Saturday night at the 0.875-mile oval. It was his fourth victory this season, setting a career best for wins in a year.
Sadler gave a victory yell on the radio and jogged to grab the checkered flag. He talked about redemption after last week’s incident at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he was penalized for beating the leader to the start/finish line during a late restart.
“It’s been a rough week,” Sadler said. “We felt like we should have won that race last week.”
