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.

Carl Edwards was trying to hold off the always-hard charging Kyle Busch and didn’t know that the car of Tim Schendel would help him win at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

Edwards and Busch were 1-2 on the track on lap 88 when Tim Schendel’s car blew the right front tire and split the two front running cars. Schendel scraped the back of Edwards’ car and was in front of Busch, who had no escape route but hit Schendel with full force.

From there, Edwards went on to lead 169 of the 200 laps and win his second consecutive Nationwide race at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked track. It was his 30th Nationwide win, the 15th NASCAR victory for car owner Jack Roush at Texas, and the first NASCAR win for a Ford Mustang.

The polesitter was steady throughout the race, never dropping below third place and won by 0.482 seconds over Brad Keselowski.

Busch had won five consecutive Nationwide races at Texas before finishing second behind Edwards in the fall race of 2010. This race marked the first time in his 13 Nationwide starts at Texas the he did not finish, and had been out of the top seven only once before.

Paul Menard finished third, Joey Logano and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top five.

Papis was driving Kevin Harvick’s Number 33 car and was happy to finish high in the race.

Said earned his first career Nationwide victory in 22 races over the last 10 years and his second NASCAR win overall. He also won a truck race at Sonoma in 1998, his only triumph in 127 previous starts in all three NASCAR racing series.

The crowd favorite, French Canadian star, Jacques Villeneuve started the race on the front row and was third in his Number 32 Toyota, followed by series points leader Brad Keselowski and Paul Menard.
