Update: Hornish Jr. has 129 Sprint Cup Series starts with five of those coming at Kansas, but this weekend will mark his first start in the Gen 6 Ford Fusion in the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway, Penske Racing PR reports.
Recommendation: Those who play in weekly lineup fantasy leagues will want to make note of this news. In this race one year ago, Hornish piloted the No. 12 Dodge to a seven-laps led and a respectable 19th-place finish. Hornish could very well improve upon those results in Sunday's 400-mile event.
