“It would be a good story line if we swap it six times this year,” Sadler said. “Last week was definitely a tough race for us. I made a mistake and put our team in a hole coming here to Homestead. Twenty points is not undoable, but we know Ricky really runs well at this racetrack.

“I’m not disappointed at all in the season we’ve had. We’ve won a lot of races, won some poles, been in the points lead. … We’ve just got one more race to try to finish it off, and we’re going to put our best foot forward and see where it takes us on Saturday.”

The closest championship race of the weekend belongs to the Camping World Truck Series. James Buescher leads Timothy Peters by 11 points and Ty Dillon by 12 heading into Friday night’s finale.

“We have to approach it like any other race weekend,” said Buescher, who has four wins this season. “I think if we switch to defense, you get too worried about what these other two guys are doing and you don’t focus on your team and what you need to do on the racetrack.

“We’ve just got to stay focused on our team, run our race, just like we have every other week, and hope we have luck on our side to not have any failures. When we haven’t had failures, we’ve ran really well everywhere this season.”
