Hornish to run limited Nationwide program in '11

January 17, 2011, Dave Rodman,

Penske Racing's Sam Hornish Jr., whose 2011 Sprint Cup Series program ended due to lack of sponsorship, will open at least a 10-race program in the Nationwide Series at Daytona International Speedway.

A team source said Hornish's Nationwide program will be sponsored and the current 10 races will be spread throughout the 34-race Nationwide Series schedule.

Crew chief Chad Walter, who led Justin Allgaier's fourth-place team in the 2010 Nationwide drivers' championship, will hold the same role for Hornish.
