Penske Racing owner Roger Penske said Friday former IndyCar champion Sam Hornish Jr. will return to the organization next season and run for the Nationwide Series championship with the No. 12 team.
Penske said Hornish will also likely run some races in a third Cup car
"We have a commitment for a number of Cup races on a third car, which Sam will be there to run those races," Penske said.
Penske said he also
expected Ryan Blaney to drive for Brad Keselowski’s Truck team next season as
well as run a handful of Nationwide races for Penske.
"It's not a done deal," Penske said of the Blaney rides. "We started with him maybe running two or three this year and I think he'll end up with seven or eight. We think that he's a fine young man, and he's got a lot to learn like they all do, but I think he's certainly coming from a family that's been racing, and he seems to have the talent."
