Sam Hornish Jr. is the reigning NASCAR Nationwide series runner up from 2013. However, 2014 has been anything but pleasant as Hornish Jr. looked to move up a spot and win the championship this year. His time with Team Penske is something that Hornish Jr. has put in the rear view mirror and his new deal with Joe Gibbs Racing has him feeling good about himself. Although the deal with JGR is only for a handful of races, Hornish Jr. is making the most of it thus far by winning the pole for the Aaron’s 312.
Listed below is the starting grid for the Aaron’s 312 from Talladega.
|1.||Sam Hornish Jr.||186.783|
|3.||Darrell Wallace Jr.||186.729|
|15.||John Wes Townley||185.761|
|29.||Tommy Joe Martins||186.467|
Whether or not Hornish Jr. will be a factor come the end of the race is something that we will have to just wait and see. Be sure to check out the Aaron’s 312 live on Saturday.
