Sam Hornish to race at Kansas, Talladega

Per SportingNews, Sam Hornish Jr. will get a chance to redeem himself at NASCAR’s highest level when he runs Sprint Cup races at Kansas Speedway next week and Talladega next month for Penske Racing.

The three-time IndyCar Series champion is running the full Nationwide Series for Penske after struggling during his initial foray into NASCAR.

“It’s a great opportunity on an off weekend for the Nationwide Series to go get a little bit more Cup experience,” Hornish said. “I’m really excited about the opportunity to go out there and have some fun.”

Hornish will have to qualify for both races on speed.
