NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against his former employer for failure to pay past salary owed.
According to North Carolina Superior Court documents, the Nationwide Series points leader is seeking $10,000 in damages for breach of contract; $10,000 to prevent the defendant’s unjust enrichment, and $10,000 or more to be determined at trial for unfair and deceptive trade practices. Sadler filed the lawsuit against Richard Petty Motorsports after, he claims, the company refused to make an April payment because he violated a non-solicitation clause in their separation agreement.
According to the lawsuit, Sadler was accused of violating the clause for allegedly influencing Haunts Brothers Pizza, which sponsored his Sprint Cup car at Richard Petty in 2010, to join him and Kevin Harvick in the Nationwide and Truck Series at Kevin Harvick Inc. this season.
Sadler is requesting a jury trial.
