After waiting years with more patience than he ever thought he would need, Sam Hornish Jr. Corentin Tolisso Bayern Munich Jersey . is getting a second shot at a full-time ride in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.The three-time IndyCar Series champion has signed a multi-year deal with Richard Petty Motorsports to drive the No. 9 Ford starting in 2015. Hornish is back in the game with something to prove after a few seasons toiling in the Nationwide Series.Id taken quite a few lumps, Hornish said Wednesday. I always saw that there was light at the end of the tunnel, but sometimes you dont know if thats a train or not, you know?Turned out it was Richard Petty with an open seat Hornish could not refuse.Hornish, the 2006 Indianapolis 500 champion, last completed a full Cup season in 2010 driving for Roger Penske. He drove three full seasons for Penske (2008-10) but made just one start each in 2011, 2013 and 2014 seasons. He made 20 starts for Penske in 2012, part of a lacklustre first attempt at a regular NASCAR career. He is winless with only three top-fives in 131 career Cup starts and never finished higher than 28th in the standings.Hornish struggled with stock cars from the start, missing his first six attempts in 2007 to qualify for Cup races on speed.I havent achieved yet what I came over here originally for, he said.Hornish will replace Marcos Ambrose, who is leaving NASCAR at the end of the season for his native Australia to drive V8 Supercars for Team Penske.Hornish joins RPM from Joe Gibbs Racing where he competed part-time in the Nationwide Series this season, with one win and four top-five finishes in only eight starts.Hes a family man who fits well with our core values and he will be a great ambassador for our partners. Sams also proven that he can win races and compete for a championship, Petty said. He came into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with a steep learning curve from open wheel racing, but has shown in the Nationwide Series that he is a winner. We feel that he can get the No. 9 team to Victory Lane and compete in the Chase for us.RPM will remain a two-car organization with Aric Almirola in the No. 43. Almirola made the Chase by winning the rain-shortened July race at Daytona, where he gave Petty his first win in 15 years.With three championships and an Indianapolis 500 victory, Hornish had long felt there was nothing left for him to achieve with an open-wheel return. He gutted out seasons in Nationwide, wondering if he would ever get a second a chance to prove his mettle in Cup.He fell just three points shy of winning the Nationwide championship last season and still had no offers for a full-time ride this season. Even with a runner-up finish, the best he could get was a limited ride this season driving for JGR.We had sponsors at the time and made a strong run for the championship in 2013 and found myself without a ride, Hornish said. You kind of always wonder where things are going to land from that point. But I put my trust in, that if I found a way to put myself in good equipment this season and did the right things that something good would come along. Sure enough, it did.The 35-year-old Hornish scored one of the few open seats left for 2015, leaving veteran drivers like David Ragan and Regan Smith still on the outside.Hornishs car still has no primary sponsor for 2015 and there are no plans for RPM to run him in the Nationwide Series. RPM will lose sponsors DeWalt and Stanley at the end of this season. Twisted Tea is onboard for a few races.Drew Blickensderfer will remain crew chief on the No. 9. Manuel Neuer Bayern Munich Jersey . 25 against Miami. Hillis left Browns Stadium about two hours before kickoff, a decision that has led to speculation he was upset over ongoing negotiations with the club on a contract extension. Corentin Tolisso Jersey . Ricciardos exclusion from the results tarnished what had been a day of celebration for local fans, who were jubilant that the Red Bull driver had apparently become the first Australian to finish on the podium at his home race. However just before midnight, stewards ruled that Ricciardos car had "exceeded consistently the maximum allowed fuel flow" and that the team refused an instruction from the races technical delegate Charlie Whiting to change the fuel-flow sensor before the race and a further request during the race to reduce the fuel flow. . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the New York Rangers winger skated with extras and goalies today.INDIANAPOLIS -- Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti had surgery Monday on his broken right ankle. It was the second operation on his ankle since Franchitti was injured Oct. 6 in an accident on the last lap of the Grand Prix of Houston. He also fractured two vertebrae and suffered a concussion. IndyCar orthopedic consultant Dr. Terry Trammel said Mondays surgery lasted just over three hours and was to repair the talus bone in Franchittis ankle. The talus bone connects the leg and the foot. The surgery was performed by Dr. Tim Weber, who told Trammel it "went perfectly and just as planned." "His post-operation X-rays looked great. Everything is positive at this point as Dario continues his recovery," Trammel said. Franchittis accident occurred when contact with Takuma Sato sent his car sailiing into the fence. David Alaba Jersey. Debris from the accident injured 13 fans and one IndyCar official. Franchitti, from Scotland, is a four-time IndyCar champion. He was moved from a Houston hospital last Thursday to Indianapolis and Target Chip Ganassi Racing released a photo of him before the trip that showed him smiling, surrounded by his two dogs, and aided by a walker. His right leg was in a cast and he was wearing a heavy brace around his torso. In Indianapolis, hes been visited by teammate Scott Dixon. A photo posted over the weekend by Dixons wife showed the couple and their two daughters posing next to a smiling Franchitti in his hospital bed. Franchitti will miss Saturday nights season finale at Fontana, where Dixon will try to win his third IndyCar championship. Alex Tagliani will drive Franchittis car.
