Veteran NASCAR driver stopped from entering track gets heated with Homestead president

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Elliott Sadler said he didn’t “have any regrets” related to his argument with Homestead-Miami Speedway's president that came within earshot of dozens of reporters.

Sadler, whose NASCAR career will conclude with Saturday’s Xfinity Series finale (3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN), said in a tweet that “security is a joke” at the track after officials stopped him from entering the infield with his hard card identification. He then proceeded to rip the track at a news conference Friday afternoon.

“This place has always been tough with their security,” Sadler said. “The people who run this track have no idea who they are doing security for. … Does anyone have any common sense at the racetrack?

“Homestead, please get some folks who know what they’re doing. I don’t know who the president of the track is, but he needs to wake up."

That would be Matthew Becherer, who confronted Sadler at the conclusion of Sadler’s presser and an argument ensued.
