2014 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Hornish leaps back into NASCARís top division thanks to an opening at Richard Petty Motorsports. The No. 9 Ford had an opening after Marcos Ambrose decided to end his NASCAR career and head back to his home country of Australia. This gives the veteran driver a great opportunity to revive his Sprint Cup Series career after three seasons of heavy competition in the Xfinity Series. Hornish claimed two victories, 51 Top-10 finishes and finished runner-up in the championship standings in 2013 during that three-year span. The talent is undeniable when given good equipment to race. Heíll seek to prove that in his return to the Sprint Cup Series with RPM. Hornish should take some time to develop chemistry with his new team, but heíll be more competitive than not most weekends.
