Sam Hornish Jr gains Walmart sponsorship for Chicagoland


Sam Hornish Jr. will have the familiar colors of Walmart on board his No. 9 Ford Fusion this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.

The Richard Petty Motorsports driver will also have a host of associate sponsors on-board this weekend including Blue-Emu®, SlimFast® and Natrol®, LLC.

“Our job this weekend is to give everyone associated with the No. 9 team a good finish,” said Hornish. “The opportunity to put Walmart in the spotlight in Chicagoland is special, and I’m thankful for Blue-Emu, SlimFast and Natrol, LLC for all they did to make this happen.”

While neither RPM car has made the Chase, both Hornish and teammate Aric Almirola will be looking to put their best foot forward with an eye towards the 2016 season.

Hornish has made four starts at Chicagoland with an aerage finish of 27.5. His best finish came back in 2012 while driving for Penske Racing in the No. 22 Ford Fusion.
