MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Sam Hornish Jr. says he hopes to run a minimum of 11 Nationwide Series races this season for Penske Racing.
Hornish admits Monday it's a step back, but says sponsorship woes forced his team to give up his seat in the elite Sprint Cup Series.
Hornish has spent the last three years racing full-time in the Sprint Cup Series. He has eight top-10 finishes, and a career-best finish of 28th in the points.
Hornish won three championships in the IndyCar Series and the 2006 Indianapolis 500. He moved to NASCAR after the 2007 season.
