CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Sam Hornish Jr. will drive seven Nationwide Series races for Joe Gibbs Racing this season.
Hornish will share the No. 54 Toyota with Kyle Busch, who will drive the car in 26 races.
He moves to Gibbs after 10 years with Penske Racing. Hornish finished second in the Nationwide series championship race last season.
But Penske decided not to bring Hornish back this year, partly because of sponsorship issues and partly because the organization believed it was time for Hornish to move on to a Sprint Cup Series ride.
With very few open seats available, Hornish landed at JGR in the shared seat.
Hornish will drive at Talladega in May, both Iowa events, at Road America, Chicagoland, Mid-Ohio, and Kentucky in September.
