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.

SPARTA, KENTUCKY — Driving his backup car, Brad Keselowski raced to his third win of the year, grabbing the lead with 55 laps to go and held off all challengers Saturday night in the NASCAR Quaker State 400 race at Kentucky Speedway.

Brad Keselowski's winning car

This year’s race went smooth as silk after track and Kentucky government officials spent the 365 days widening ramps, roads and highways and added 20,000 parking spaces. The initial Cup race in 2011 was marred by severe traffic jams and congestion which resulted in thousands of angry fans that got turned away due to no parking spaces being available.

The 28-year-old Keselowski, who is from the Detroit suburb of Rochester Hills, Michigan, won his seventh win in his five years in the Sprint Cup Series. He has two other wins this season at Bristol and Talladega.

The always-energetic and humorous Keselowski, was driving his backup car after wrecking the right side of his top car into the wall in a collision with Juan Pablo Montoya during practice earlier in the week during practice sessions. That accident occured on his first lap on the track.

Kasey Kahne came through with a late surge to finish second; Denny Hamlin was third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. came in fourth and Jeff Gordon was fifth.

2011 race champion Kurt Busch had the dominant car early in the first half of the race before he was bumped into a wall and had to battle suspension problems and a shock absorber which dropped into a non-contention state.

Tony Stewart was never a factor as he fell to the back of the pack with fuel-injection problems.

Danica Patrick has been guaranteed a spot in the upcoming Daytona 500 race due to a partnership with Tommy Baldwin Racing.

She will drive the #10 Chevrolet in 10 Sprint Cup Series races in 2012. The # 10 car will start the season with the points Dave Blaney earned in 2011 in the number-36 car.

Teams can transfer or sell points to another team if they want and Tony Stewart of Stewart-Haas Racing acquired them for Patrick to run in the Daytona 500 race which will take place on February 26. It is the season-opening race for NASCAR.

With Blaney finishing 33rd in points in 2011, his car was guaranteed a spot in the starting field in the first five races of this season.

When Patrick is not racing, the #10 car will be driven by David Reutimann in 26 races.

The NASCAR season just ended on Sunday and already teams are getting ready for 2012.

There have been reports that they’ll be closing down the #6 Cup team of driver David Ragan and will go back to one full-time Nationwide car.

Roush Fenway had four Sprint Cup Series teams and three Nationwide Series cars this season.

Teammates Clint Bowyer and Jeff Burton led the race around the Talladega Superspeedway for several laps on Sunday until a checkered flag came out and Bowyer took control to win the race.

Bowyer won his first race of the season as he grabbed Sunday’s Good Sam Club 500 to give Richard Childress Racing its 100th career win in the Sprint Cup Series.

The victory was redemption for Bowyer. He had lost the spring race at Talladega when Dale Earnhardt Jr. pushed Jimmie Johnson past the Bowyer-Burton duo and Bowyer had to settle for second-place.

Carl Edwards, who came into the race with a five-point lead on Kevin Harvick, finished 11th and increased his lead to 14 points over Roush Fenway Racing teammate Matt Kenseth.
