INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Ohio native Sam Hornish, Jr. has been filling in quite well for suspended driver A.J. Allmendinger, who is  participating in NASCAR’s substance-abuse recovery program.

Hornish, the 33-year-old Defiance, Ohio native, drove the No. 12 Nationwide car this Saturday at Indianapolis and next weekend at Pocono. Hornish has filled in for Allmendinger in the past two Sprint Cup Series races. On the Cup side, he is driving the #22 car.

Saturday afternoon at the Brickyard, Hornish drove the #12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge to a second-place finish in the Inaugural Indiana 250 at the Brickyard. He ran all 100 laps and picked up 43 points for Team Penske.

His teammate, Brad Keselowski, won his third Nationwide race of 2012, in the #22 Discount Tire Dodge. It was the first time that team owner Roger Penske, has won a stock car race at the famed Brickyard.  He has won 15 races in IndyCar at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch led a race high three times for 51 laps in the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota. But he never recovered from a slow pit stop under caution on Lap 64 that dropped him from first to ninth on the ensuing restart. Busch ended up finishing 22nd, slowed by a spin after losing control on a restart on Lap 79. He side-swiped Hornish during the incident, who continued in the No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge without trouble.

A favorite amongst members of the media, Hornish has not had a full-time ride since 2010. In 2011, he raced just one time, all season, winning the Wypall 200 at Phoenix for Front Row Motorsports.

Hornish returned to the Nationwide Series for a complete schedule in 2012 for Penske Racing.

NASCAR PREVIEW: RACE #22 Pennsylvania 500 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday



The NASCAR race schedule shifts from the Brickyard in Indianapolis to Long Pond, Pennsylvania this weekend for the Pennsylvania 500 in the Pocono Mountains.

The Sprint Cup race will take place on Sunday August 1 at 1 p.m. on ESPN.

Pocono Raceway also hosted NASCAR’s 15th race back on June 6.

The triangular track might just be NASCAR’S trickiest, with three very different corners and three straightaways of varying lengths that will challenge drivers and crew chiefs all day.

Pocono Raceway (NASCAR)

The Pennsylvania 500 is 500 miles which equals 200 laps on the 2.5 mile track.

Pocono Raceway opened in 1974 and seats 76,812.

Pocono says its solar farm makes it the only sports facility anywhere in the world to generate enough clean, renewable energy on site to more than offset its annual use of electricity. The raceway’s 3-megawatt solar farm, covering 25 acres, is expected to be completed by the fall of 2010 and will power all of the track’s energy needs.

There is something new to the Raceway on the track. A NASCAR Camping World Truck race will debut on Saturday July 31.

Recapping the 2009 Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500. Denny Hamlin’s fifth career Cup victory was his third at Pocono. He led 91 of the 200 laps in a race delayed by a day by rain. Juan Pablo Montoya, Clint Bowyer, Sam Hornish, Jr. and Kasey Kahne completed the top five.

Tickets for the races at Pocono Raceway range from $45 up to $500. Call the Raceway at 800-722-3929 or you can also order them at

Graham Rahal will drive in the Indy 500 for famous Dad

compiled from staff and wire reports

It’s still early in the Indy Racing League season and it’s hard to believe that Graham Rahal still doesn’t have a regular ride. But he will have on for “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing” the Indianapolis 500. And most of all, he’ll be driving for his famous dad.

Rahal will drive for Rahal Letterman Racing, teamming up with his dad who has won at the Brickyard as a driver and an owner.

The younger Rahal 21, will drive in the May 30 race in the Rahal/Letterman’s number 30 Dallara/Honda for a yet-to-be-determined sponsor.

Considered to be one of the best driver’s on the IndyCar Series’ circuit since he became it’s youngest at 19 in 2008, Graham went into 2010 without a full ride after two years with Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing.

Rahal had a chance to drive in the first three of the first four races with  Sarah Fisher Racing, his best finish a ninth at St. Petersburg. Fisher took over behind the wheel at Kansas Speedway last weekend, leaving the talented and popular Rahal with an uncertain future.

His dad, Bobby Rahal was a three-time CART champion, who won the Indy in 1986 as a driver and as owner with Buddy Rice in 2004. Despite his son’s talents as a driver, Bobby had been very reluctant to hire him as a driver at Rahal-Letterman Racing, because he wanted Graham to be his own man, live on his own accomplishments and no one can say he made it because his dad is Bobby Rahal.
