Hermie Sadler will drive TRG Motorsports’ No. 71 Eco Fuel Saver Chevy in the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway. This will be his second start for TRG.
I had a lot of fun running for TRG Motorsports last fall at Martinsville. 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.
In related news, TRG will switch to Fords beginning at Texas Motor Speedway. The team will use Fords supplied by Roush Fenway Racing with engines from Roush Yates Engines.
Team owner Kevin Buckler said:
We are excited to be partnering with Roush Fenway and getting some new equipment in the TRG Motorsports stable. It has been a long few years in figuring out our best options to succeed in NASCAR and we have a golden opportunity to really improve our performance with some shiny new equipment and some technical support. The Fords are on a roll right now and Roush Fenway does it right. A partnership with them and with Roush/Yates Engines will be an outstanding package for our team.
Previously, the team used Chevys provided by Richard Childress Racing and engines from Earnhardt Childress Racing.
