Elliott Sadler may have retired from full-time racing but he’s still worth a pretty penny – here’s the NASCAR star’s estimated net worth. Born into a racing family, Elliott Sadler embarked on his racing career at the tender age of seven on the go-kart circuit and later moved up to stock car racing. After turning 18, Sadler graduated to the NASCAR sanctioned Winston Racing Series (now the Whelen All-American Series) and he soon made a name for himself in his home state of Virginia at the South Boston Speedway where he won 13 races that included a six-race winning streak.
In the mid-1990s, Elliott Sadler moved to top-tier NASCAR racing and competed as an independent until Diamond Ridge Motorsports owner Gary Bechtel signed him to the team, whom he drove for in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Later, Sadler would race full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series for Wood Brothers Racing, driving its iconic No. 21 Ford and scored his first Cup win in 2001. Throughout his Xfinity Series and Cup Series career, he has raced for many teams including Robert Yates Racing, Petty Motorsports and JR Motorsports and scored a total of 13 Xfinity wins and three Cup wins.
It hasn’t all been plain sailing for the NASCAR star, however. In the early 2000s, he was involved in two dramatic flip-crashes at the Talladega Superspeedway - of Talladega Nights fame - that he miraculously emerged from unscathed. Prior to the 2007 Daytona 500, Sadler was caught up in a cheating scandal that saw him docked 25 points and in 2010 he was involved in a serious crash at the Pocono Raceway that caused the engine to come out of his car. Despite those setbacks, Elliott Sadler’s successful career has amassed him a net worth of $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In 2018, Sadler announced that he would be retiring from full-time competitive racing after completing that year’s Xfinity Series with JR Motorsports. As a befitting end to his full-time racing career, he was named the NASCAR Xfinity Series Most Popular Driver for the third consecutive year and his fourth win overall. Following a brief hiatus, Sadler returned to the driving seat racing part-time for Kaulig Racing and competed in two Xfinity Series races in 2019.
Beyond his racing career, Elliott Sadler is an advocate for various autism charities and set up his own charity – The Hermie and Elliott Sadler Foundation – alongside his racing driver brother Hermie Sandler to raise awareness and funds for those affected by autism.
