ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - If Sam Hornish Jr. could do it over, he would be more selective in the way he made the jump from open-wheel racing to NASCAR.
Hornish now understands the value of having the right ride. So he relishes his shot at victories in the Nationwide series this year, even if those chances won't come every week.
Hornish, the 2006 Indianapolis 500 winner and a three-time series champion in Indy-style racing, is racing a part-time Nationwide schedule for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2014. He's splitting the No. 54 car with Sprint Cup series star Kyle Busch, so he'll only get to race when Busch can't.
His next opportunity is Saturday's race at Road America, a scenic 4-mile road course in central Wisconsin. A win here would help him continue to build a compelling case that he deserves another shot at the Cup series.
