Elliott Sadler has won the Xfinity Series Most Popular Driver Award, marking his third consecutive year as the recipient and fourth overall, NASCAR announced Wednesday.

Sadler, 43, ended his full-time NASCAR career this season after making 853 starts in all three of NASCAR’s national series since 1995.

Sadler’s achievement is the seventh straight year a JR Motorsports driver has won the award.

NASCAR also announced that Noah Gragson won Most Popular Driver in the Camping World Truck Series.

Gragson, who finished second in the championship standings, won the award in his second full-time season in Trucks driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Gragson ended 2018 with one win, eight top fives, 17 top 10s and six poles.

The 20-year-old driver will race for JR Motorsports in the Xfinity Series in 2019.
