"I am honored to be part of such a great initiative," said Sadler. "I view this as a tribute to a legend, Jack Ingram. This brings together so many things. The history of the sport, past and current drivers, the importance of the car number to fans and sponsors, and above all, one of the highest honors a driver can have: to be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame."

The No. 11 OneMain Financial paint scheme will pay tribute to the No. 11 car Ingram drove to two Nationwide Series championships in 1982 and 1985. Sadler will also sport a fire suit to pay homage to the NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee.

"I am really looking forward to having Jack [Ingram] at the track at Richmond, and I'm hoping he will bring this No. 11 team some good luck. We have such a great sponsor in OneMain Financial to want to honor this momentous occasion with the 1,000th Nationwide Series event and Jack's invitation to join the Hall of Fame. It should be a great weekend."
