The second announcement came as a bit of a surprise, however. Brendan Gaughan (pictured) will also attempt to make the race, driving for Mark Beard.
If you don't know who Beard is, you're not alone. His team, Beard Motorsports, competed part-time in 2014 but failed to qualify in every event they entered. There's no word on Gaughan's car number; Beard used No. 75 in 2014 though Gaughan almost always uses No. 62 with his South Point sponsorship.
Good luck to both veteran drivers. Both Sadler and Gaughan never really got a chance to show what they were capable of in Cup. Hopefully they'll both make the race and enjoy a strong outing.
