Dances with wins? Sam Hornish grabs first NASCAR victory

How about that Sam Hornish Jr.?

Hornish -- who we've given the nickname Dances With Walls over the years at the Marbles thanks to his frequent spins in the Sprint Cup Series -- danced all the way to victory lane in Saturday's Nationwide race at the newly paved Phoenix International Raceway, holding off teammate Brad Keselowski.

The win, Hornish's first in NASCAR, also came at the site of his first win in the IndyCar Series when he won the 2001 season opener at PIR.

Hornish and owner Roger Penske hope to run full-time in the Nationwide Series next season. Before running a part-time Nationwide schedule this season, Hornish ran three full seasons in the Cup Series, getting two top fives.
