It seems almost every time the veteran Elliott Sadler shows up for a Camping World Trucks Series event, he immediately becomes the one to “watch”.

For tonight’s running of the O’Reilly 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway, expect about the same.

Sadler won the pole Wednesday evening, turning a lap of 122. 607mph driving in his Joe Denette Motorsports Chevrolet.

Nelson Piquet Jr. (121.898 mph), qualified P2 in tonight’s event, making a career-best starting spot. Ron Hornaday will start third, while Brendan Gaughan and James Buescher round out the top-five.

Kevin Harvick, winner of the last two NCWTS races, will line up sixth. The rest of the top-10: Kyle Busch, Timothy Peters, Todd Bodine and Joey Coulter.

There were only two drivers who failed to qualify: Jennifer Jo Cobb and Norm Benning.

Wednesday marked Sadler’s second pole in 18 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events, which is pretty impressive even for Sadler’s standards. Did I mention the native Virginian’s first pole came at Pocono last year, where he later went on to win?

Sadler claimed his first pole and seventh top-10 start of 2011.
