DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - When Sam Hornish ruled the open-wheel world, he was constantly asked about a potential move to NASCAR.
After four miserable years, the question has changed. But his answer remains the same - he's sticking with NASCAR. When he races in the Nationwide Series opener on Saturday at Daytona International Speedway, it will be in a quest for a NASCAR championship.
Hornish sat out most of last season because of sponsorship issues at Penske Racing. The team put together a package for Hornish to run the full Nationwide schedule. Now his goal is to get back to the Sprint Cup Series and race for wins and championships in NASCAR's top series.
When he left IndyCar, he left with three championships and an Indianapolis 500 victory.
