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.

Brad Keselowski and his crew chief Paul Wolfe will be remaining at Penske Racing after the agreement of a new multi-year contract extension.

The duo produced three wins for Penske’s #2 Dodge in 2011 as Keselowski finished in fifth place in the Sprint Cup chase.

The 27-year-old Michigan native has 4 Cup wins in his career with 20 top 10 finishes and 2 poles.

In the Nationwide Series, he has been more successful.  Keselowski has 17 wins, 103 top 10′s and 12 poles.

Kurt Busch’s turnaround on the racetrack continued with a dominating run at Infineon Raceway, where he earned his first career road-course win and his first of the season.

Busch led a race-high 76 laps and beat Jeff Gordon by almost four seconds.

Busch has really come on since he became upset at his race team’s performance and the Penske Racing organization on his car radio at Richmond in early May.

Busch had been winless in 10 career starts at both Sonoma and Watkins Glen, the only two road courses on the Sprint Cup circuit.

Rounding out the top five, Jeff Gordon was second, Carl Edwards finished third, Clint Bowyer was fourth and Marcos Ambrose finished fifth.
