Elliott Sadler gets Xfinity win after Brennan Poole crosses finish line first at Talladega

Elliott Sadler celebrated his 41st birthday Saturday with his first victory in almost two years.

Mired in a drought that dated to May 4, 2014, Sadler didn't mind waiting through a five-minute post-race review by NASCAR to be named the winner of the Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

NASCAR had to determine who was the actual leader when a caution froze the field in overtime. Brennan Poole crossed the finish line first, but was denied his first career Xfinity Series win when NASCAR said the field was frozen with Sadler still ahead of Poole.
