With Trevor Bayne getting a full time ride in the Roush-Fenway Racing flagship #6 Advocare Ford in 2015, that leaves a void in the driver’s seat of the Wood Brother’s #21 Ford. The garage noise is that there is a real possibility that Sam Hornish, Jr. may be the driver that slips into that seat for 2015.
Remember who is the “new lead dog” for the Ford camp these days, Team Penske, not Roush-Fenway Racing. Likewise, remember who Hornish drove for in the last few Indy 500’s, also remember that Hornish drove the last few years for Team Penske in the Sprint Cup Series and the Nationwide Series.
Also remember that Roger Penske is a very loyal employer. The Captain kept A.J. Allmendinger on his payroll for the reminder of the 2012 season, even after “The Dinger” was suspended from NASCAR after his faux pas with Adderall.
Therefore, there is little to no surprise that most likely Penske would use his influence with Ford to get Sam Hornish, Jr. a ride in the Wood Bros. famous #21 Ford!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
