Kvapil May Replace Hornish In Aaron's 499

On NASCAR RaceDay, it was reported that Penske Championship Racing driver Sam Hornish Jr is suffering from the flu. He is expected to start the race in the No. 77 Penske Trucking Dodge, but Travis Kvapil was flown in this morning just in case Hornish can’t complete the race.

Kvapil was being fitted in the seat, so that a swap could be performed quickly, if needed.

The team should have plenty of time to swap drivers under caution without going a lap down because Talladega Superspeedway is a big track.
