Sadler Set For Martinsville Sprint Cup Start

Hermie Sadler
Virginia native Hermie Sadler will drive the No. 33 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet this weekend at Martinsville Speedway, with sponsorship from Anderson's Maple Syrup and AM-FM Energy. He will be a guaranteed starter in Sunday’s Goody's Fast Relief 500, after younger brother Elliott Sadler and Brendan Gaughan drove the car to 35th place in owner points in the opening five races of the 2012 season.

Buddy Sisco will serve as crew chief for the effort.

Sadler ran three Sprint Cup races last season for TRG Motorsports, with a best finish of 26th at Martinsville. He has 63 career Sprint Cup starts, dating back to 1996.


  1. Love to see Hermie back behind the wheel and on the track. Let's see what a good ole boy can do in great equipment!

    Once again the Top 35 rears it's ugly head.
    How is it a sport that is supposed to be about speed qualifies a driver before even unloading a car?
    I remember what happened when no Penske cars qualified for the Indy 500. Over 400K people still showed up on race day, and enjoyed watching the fastest 33 cars in the field.
    If you want to help small start up teams how about giving them a level playing field instead of rewarding the owner w/ the deepest pockets to buy points?
    When you buy a ticket to a game there are no guarantees your favorite athlete is playing that day, why should Nascar be any different?
