Busch Ride For Hornish Jr

31918Jpg
HAMPTON, Ga. - Add Sam Hornish Jr.'s name to the list of open wheel drivers dipping their toe into NASCAR.

The reigning Indy Racing League champion and 2006 Indianapolis 500 winner will attempt to qualify for Busch races next month at Phoenix and Homestead.

Penske Racing will field a Dodge Charger for Hornish, Jr. with the No. 39 car carrying Mobil 1 sponsorship.

"ExxonMobil has been a ongtime sponsor of Penske Racing and I'm proud to make my NASCAR debut in the No. 39 Mobil 1 Dodge," Hornish, Jr. said. "I also remain committed to competing in the 2007 IndyCar Series in an attempt to repeat as the Indianapolis 500 and Series champion.

Hornish Jr. is the IRL's career victory leader and the only three-time champion in series history.

His track record at Phoenix and Homestead is impressive with two IRL wins at PIR and three victories at Homestead.

"I've had a great deal of success at Phoenix and Homestead in IndyCars and hopefully I can transfer that experience to the Busch car," Hornish said.

Hornish is also slated to compete in a limited schedule of Busch Series races for Penske in 2007, that don't conflict with the IRL calendar.
