Elliott Sadler will be dealing with uncertainty as 2011 approaches.
As RPM's fate goes, so goes the fate of Elliott Sadler.
His sponsor, Stanley Tools, goes to Ambrose next year, as the team may have to contract due to limited funding.
Richard Petty may be trying to secure investors to keep the team afloat, but no matter what happens the team may concentrate its energy on Marcos Ambrose and emerging star A.J. Allmendinger.
Sadler is seemingly hedging his bets, becoming more and more visible in the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series, piloting entries fielded by Kevin and DeLana Harvick.
It may be a good shot for Sadler to go there and compete full time for a title, since it seems there may be some limitations on full-time Cup drivers coming in and gunning for the Nationwide Championship.
The Harvicks have shown a reluctance to develop new drivers, and instead have concentrated on giving experienced hands the quality equipment to win.
Elliott Sadler could be your Nationwide Champ for 2011.
