Elliott Sadler's ride with MWR is in jeopardy

Per, Elliott Sadler’s plans to substitute for Mark Martin behind the wheel of the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series may have been a bit premature. But multiple sources told the deal blew up Saturday night, shortly after it was announced via a press release. While talks had been in the works for a couple of months, the manufacturer conflict for Sadler, who drives Chevrolets full time for RCR in the Nationwide Series, appears to have squashed the arrangement.
