Hornish will join Penske in NASCAR

CHARLOTTE, N.C.PARIS - Six times already Sam Hornish Jr. has tried to make it into NASCAR's main event, and all six times he's been sent home.

The failure has only made him want it more.

The three-time Indy Car Series champion is moving to NASCAR in 2008, joining the mass exodus of open-wheel stars fleeing to America's most popular racing series. He told The Associated Press he will drive the No. 77 Dodge next season for Penske Racing with Mobil 1 as the sponsor.

The 28-year-old Hornish has been flirting with NASCAR since last season and will try again to make his Nextel Cup debut this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. .

Instead, the most prolific American driver in open-wheel right now chose NASCAR, but said leaving the Indy Car Series was "one of the more difficult decisions" he's ever had to make.

Penske will officially introduce Hornish on Saturday night at the Penske Racing Museum in Phoenix.

He'll join a team that already fields cars for Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman.
