WELCOME, N.C. (AP) - Elliott Sadler will be in the Daytona 500 for Richard Childress Racing.

Sadler has not raced in the Sprint Cup Series since 2010. He ran the Nationwide Series last season, and is scheduled to do so again this year for RCR.

RCR has sponsorship from General Mills and The Kroger Co. for Sadler to run the Daytona 500 in the No. 33 Chevrolet.

The car will also run four more Cup races with driver Brendan Gaughan and sponsorship from South Point Hotel & Casino. Gaughan previously announced an 18-race Nationwide and Truck Series schedule with RCR.

Gil Martin will be the crew chief for the No. 33 with both Sadler and Gaughan. The car has points carried over from Clint Bowyer’s season last year and is guaranteed a spot.
