Sadler, who broke a 65-race winless streak, received his first series victory and eighth top-10 finish of the season, his 11th series career victory in 305 races and his second series victory in eight races at TSS.

Justin Allgaier finished behind Sadler to finish in second-place, and they were followed by series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) contender, Brennan Poole finishing third, Jeremy Clements fourth and Brendan Gaughan finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 finishing positions were Austin Dillon taking sixth-place, Daniel Suarez seventh, pole-sitter Matt Tifft eighth, Chase Elliott ninth and Aric Almirola brought home 10th.

With his victory, Sadler breaks the tie for the lead with Daniel Suarez and leaves Talladega the series’ points leader.
