I don’t know what has gotten into Sam Hornish Jr., but all of a sudden he is making racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series seem quite easy. Hornish already proved he is a capable driver in the series last season when he finished fourth in the final driver point standings, but what he is doing to start the 2013 season should be opening up eyes everywhere.
Through three races, Hornish has an astonishing average finish of 3.3. He has recorded two top-fives, and he has yet to finish outside of the top-ten in any race this season.
Even when the odds were stacked up against Hornish two weeks ago with a crash in Phoenix; his team battled tough, bandaged up his battered race car, and Hornish dug deep for a seventh place finish. Those are the days that championships are founded on. Days like Hornish had this past Saturday in Vegas are the days that build the mansion on the championship foundation.
