Hermie Sadler will make his first NASCAR Nationwide Series start since 2010 and his first NASCAR national series start since 2012 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Sadler will drive the No. 19 Toyota Camry for TriStar Motorsports at Bristol in the Food City 300 (Aug. 22, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) and again at Richmond International Raceway in the Virginia529 College Savings 250 (Sept. 5, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2)
Sadler's car in both races will have Virginia Lottery as the primary sponsor as the car will promote the lottery's "Let's Play VA" events. As part of the "Let's Play VA," lottery players and NASCAR fans will have the chance to join the No. 19 team as an honorary crew member and attend the NASCAR Awards banquet in Las Vegas as Sadler's guest. Sadler has been an ambassador of the Virginia Lottery for more than 15 years.
"I am thankful to my friends at The Virginia Lottery and to Mark Smith and his staff at TriStar Motorsports for making this happen," Sadler said in a release. "Getting to race again on two of my favorite tracks, as well as promote some once in a lifetime opportunities from The Virginia Lottery, is exciting for me."

He has also made 64 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts and 15 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts in his career. Hermie's younger brother, Elliott Sadler, is currently third in the Nationwide Series point standings.
