So "take after take" probably didn't even faze Hermie and Elliott Sadler today.
The brothers tried out their acting chops for a TV ad for the Virginia Lottery's racing scratch game.
And it was the Lottery's lucky day.
Elliott Sadler was a free add-on by big brother Hermie -- whose 700 thousand dollar Lottery sponsorhip contract may have lost some luster when he failed to qualify in two of the four Virginia races this year.
Scratch tickets that don't win can be mailed in for a chance to be on Hermie's pit crew in Martinsville in the fall.
