Under the agreement, Ingersoll Rand is outfitting Sadler’s garage and pit box with their latest cordless and pneumatic tools. Ingersoll Rand has been supplying pit crews with the most efficient pit tools on the market since the inaugural NASCAR race in 1959. Today, nearly every pit crew on the NASCAR circuit relies on the Ingersoll Rand ThunderGun for quick tire changes.

"It’s a great opportunity to work with Ingersoll Rand this season," said Sadler. "It’s a brand that stands for power, durability and reliability, and those are all things that we strive for as a race team. The Ingersoll Rand tools help my crew make repairs faster, which means less time in the garage and more time on the track."

This is Sadler’s inaugural season with Joe Gibbs Racing. His first NASCAR Nationwide Series career-start was in 1995. As a veteran driver with more than 16 seasons on the NASCAR circuit, Sadler has competed in the Sprint Cup, Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series. Last season, Sadler took the checkered flag at Phoenix, Bristol, Chicagoland and Iowa, and had 15 Top 5 and 24 Top 10 finishes.

Joe Gibbs Racing is based in Huntersville, N.C., just 10 miles down the road from the Ingersoll Rand North American headquarters and corporate center. JGR has dominated the NASCAR Nationwide Series circuit since 2008, collecting 68 wins in 161 races. JGR also collected one driver and four owner championships over the past five seasons.

“Other NASCAR teams measure their success against the winning records set by Joe Gibbs Racing. JGR is the team to beat every time their drivers take the track,” said Nathan Schmid, marketing manager – vehicle services, Ingersoll Rand. “Ingersoll Rand is a leader in the compressed air and tool markets, and manufactures best-in-class products. It makes sense for us to partner with a race team with a proven legacy of success — just like Ingersoll Rand tools.
