Hornish To Drive For JGR In 2014
Sam Hornish Jr has signed with Joe Gibbs Racing to drive the No. 54 Nationwide Series Toyota, the team announced.
Hornish will split time in the seat with Kyle Busch. Hornish is slated to drive seven races with the team. Busch will drive the other 26 races.
I’m excited about driving the No. 54 Monster Energy car this year. It’s a great opportunity for me. It’s the best possible situation for me to jump into great equipment and have the opportunity to go right out and win. After working with Penske for 10 years and now to have the opportunity to partner with Joe Gibbs Racing, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. These are great people, top notch. To partner with Kyle, and all this team provides, with the support of Joe and J.D., it provides me with everything I need to succeed.
Hornish will drive in the Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway in May; both races at Iowa Speedway; the Gardner Denver 200 at Road America in June; Chicagoland Speedway in July, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in August; and the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 at Kentucky Speedway in September.
