Nationwide Series point leader Elliott Sadler is leaving Richard Childress Racing in 2013 and is already discussing potential Nationwide and Sprint Cup rides with several organizations, the driver confirmed to ESPN.com
Sadler is in talks with Joe Gibbs Racing for a full-time Nationwide and part-time Cup ride, and has a change with another organization for next season, ESPN said, citing sources close to the situation.
"Right now, I don't have anything with any team," Sadler said. "We're working on some things and we are talking to some different teams, and hopefully some will come together."
JGR has a spot to fill after Joey Logano announced Tuesday he would drive the No. 22 Sprint Cup car at Penske Racing next season. Logano was offered a full-time Nationwide and part-time Cup ride to stay at JGR in 2013.
Sadler didn't elaborate on why he opted to leave.
"I just think sometimes circumstances ... the stars don't always line up," Sadler told reporters. "It's no big deal. We're just not going to be able to race for those guys next year."
