Sadler Returns to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Martinsville
Hermie Sadler, an Emporia, Virginia native, will be back behind the wheel of the No. 71 Eco Fuel Saver Chevrolet in this weekend’s Goody’s Fast Relief 500. This will mark Sadler’s 11th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Martinsville Speedway and his second start for TRG Motorsports. 

“I had a lot of fun running for TRG Motorsports last fall at Martinsville,” said Sadler. “Kevin Buckler asked me if I would be willing to do it again, and I jumped at the chance. It’s always fun to get back behind the wheel and it’s an added bonus to do it at Martinsville Speedway, a track that is close to home. It means so much to me to be able to race at one of my favorite tracks in front of my hometown fans. I am truly appreciative of the opportunity.”

Sadler, who will be making his 61st career start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series on Sunday, has one prior start in the No. 71 machine for TRG Motorsports. The 41-year-old driver piloted the Kevin Buckler owned Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway in October 2010, bringing home a 26th-place finish, a career best for Sadler and the TRG Motorsports team at the 0.526-mile oval. 

“We are excited to have Hermie back behind the wheel of the  No. 71  for TRG Motorsports,” said TRG Motorsports owner, Kevin Buckler. “He did a great job for us last year at Martinsville finishing a strong 26th and helping with our points hunt. I wanted to give him the chance to race in front of his home fans again. He is a strong short track racer that knows this place well. I feel confident in his abilities and know he is capable of helping us get a good finish here.”
