Veteran NASCAR driver and TV personality Hermie Sadler will join JGL Racing for the second time this season at Richmond International Raceway. Sadler will pilot the No. 26 Virginia Lottery Toyota on Friday September 11th in the running of the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 at "America's Premier Short Track."
"I have worked with the Virginia Lottery for almost 20 years, and I appreciate their recognition of NASCAR and its fans," said Sadler. "I am honored to partner with them to create these once in a lifetime opportunities for lottery players and NASCAR fans. "It is cool to represent Virginia Lottery at Richmond in front of our home state fans."
Sadler, also a pit reporter for FOX Sports 1, will be making his second NASCAR XFINITY Series start of the season and the 263rd of his storied career.
Virginia Lottery, a longtime sponsor of Sadler's, will use this sponsorship to promote its second-chance drawings for a VIP Weekend at the season ending races in Homestead, FL. and a second VIP Weekend in Las Vegas from December 2 - 4, 2015.
Sadler is also partnering with McGeorge Toyota of Richmond for race week at RIR. The No. 26 Toyota will feature the McGeorge Toyota logo on the TV Panel. Sadler and the Virginia Lottery show car will appear at McGeorge Toyota on Thursday night, September 10th at 7:00 p.m. A drawing will be held for a lucky fan to join Hermie and the JGL Racing team as an honorary crew member on Friday night at RIR. Fans can register for this drawing at McGeorge Toyota located at 9319 West Broad Street, Henrico, VA.
Also joining Sadler as an Associate Sponsor at Richmond is the Mid Atlantic Dirt Series. This is one of the premier touring dirt kart series on the East Coast covering six states and attracting thousands of karting fans.
"It was great working with the JGL Racing team in Bristol and being able to do so a second time will definitely help our efforts," added Sadler. "We look forward to a solid run in the No. 26 Virginia Lottery Toyota in front of our home state fans."
