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.
