Hornish 22nd At Mich. Speedway

Sam Hornish Jr., AHS ’98 and Indianapolis 500 winner, returned to racing in front of his home crowd, Sunday, Aug. 17 in the Performance 400 at Michigan International Speedway, Brooklyn, Mich.

After qualifying in the 23rd position, Hornish battled an ill-handling condition throughout the day before finishing the 200-lap race in 22nd place.

The No. 77 team remains 34th in the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup owners points standings.

His strong performance gave him the “Rookie of the Race” award as the top-finishing rookie.

“I don’t know what to say about today,” said Hornish. “We finished respectable today, but it was a struggle. We probably had a top-15 car but didn’t get a top-15 finish.”

Hornish returns to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, Saturday night, Aug. 23.- Information courtesy Penske Racing
