JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Sam Hornish Jr. is uncomfortable with the idea that he is benefiting from another driver's adversity. That won't stop him from trying to make the most of another chance to race in the Sprint Cup Series.
Given Hornish's own struggles in NASCAR over the past few seasons, the former IndyCar ace is thankful for any chance to redeem himself - even if it took A.J. Allmendinger's failed drug test to give him another shot at Cup.
NASCAR suspended Allmendinger earlier this month for failing a random drug test. His second urine sample will be tested Tuesday, a critical moment that will likely determine Allmendinger's future at Penske Racing.
Hornish has been filling in for Allmendinger, and may continue in that role if the suspension remains in place.
