Leaning Right and Turning Left with Sadler and the Senator

Leaning Right and Turning Left with Sadler and the Senator

Leaning Right and Turning Left with Sadler and the Senator, powered by Pace-O-Matic, features NASCAR legend, broadcaster and businessman Hermie Sadler along with his good friend and Virginia State Senator, Bill Stanley. You can expect a lot of talk about "turning left" as the two longtime racing fans discuss the latest happenings in the world of auto racing, along with some "leaning right" as they dive into the world of state and national politics along with talk about small business and the law. No matter the subject, Sadler and the Senator will keep you informed and entertained each week, and this show will be unlike anything you have ever heard.
