One year after his spectacular crash on the backstretch, Elliott Sadler would once again find himself upside-down at Talladega Superspeedway.
Coming to the chequered flag, Sadler was squeezed onto the apron in the tri-oval while dueling for 13th, causing him to spin into the grass, blowing over, striking the track upside down, before quickly turning back onto his wheels. He was uninjured, and was credited with 23rd.
Sadler’s crew chief Todd Parrott, decided after that race, that he would stuck a large sticker on the car’s dash, with the words “Keep all four wheels on the ground at all times”, and fortunately for Sadler, he did exactly that for the rest of his career.
