About the sadler family
Hermie Sadler's Fo Sho Bar & Grille is owned and operated by Hermie and his wife, Angie, both of whom were born and raised in Emporia, Virginia. Hermie is the son of Herman, Jr. and Bell Sadler and has an older sister named Missi and younger brother named Elliott. Hermie and his brother, Elliott, raced go-karts their entire lives leading up to their professional racecar driving careers in NASCAR. Following his high school graduation from Brunswick Academy and while he was continuing his racing career, Hermie was also continuing his education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Mr. Sadler graduated from the university with a Bachelors in Industrial Relations in 1991 and has been a continued supporter of the school and their athletic programs.
Angie, however, graduated high school from Greensville County Public School and attended Richard Bland College as well as Longwood University. Angie graduated with a Bachelors in Psychology in 1995 and had plans to earn her masters the following year until after five years of dating, Hermie proposed to Angie. The couple married in February of 1996 and the following January, welcomed their first child, Cora. They also have two younger children; Halie and Naomi. Halie was diagnosed with Autism in 2001, which led the Sadler Family to become advocates for Autism Awareness.
Cora followed in her father's footsteps as she is a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was also a varsity cheerleader and senior captain for the football and basketball teams. Cora is now the head coach of the Varsity Cheerleading team at Brunswick Academy and does local cheerleading clinics at TopHand Foundation. Halie graduated from Brunswick Academy in 2018 and is our best employee at Fo Sho. Naomi will be an eleventh grader this fall at Brunswick Academy, where she plays volleyball, basketball, and softball, and is a new member of her older sister's Varsity Cheerleading team.
Hermie is no longer an active NASCAR driver, but he continues to race once or twice a year for the Virginia Lottery. He works for FOX Sports 1 as an analyst for the Xfinity Series and Camping World Series and for his father at Sadler Bros. Oil Company in Emporia, Virginia. He also continues his passion for go-kart racing by owning Premier Karts. Visit hermiesadler.com for more details.
While Hermie continues to travel for races, radio shows, and work, his wife Angie manages their UPS Store, two restaurants, Fo Sho and Victory Lane, as well as keeps the books for several of Hermie's companies. The couple just recently opened their own Shell gas station, convenience store, and IHOP Express in Skippers, Virginia. It is located off I-95 on exit 4, just a few miles south of Fo Sho.
