TALLADEGA, Ala. (May 3, 2013) – Sam Hornish Jr. and the No. 12 Wurth Ford Mustang team qualified in the sixth position for Saturday’s Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Hornish piloted his Penske Ford around the 2.66 mile superspeedway in 54.480 seconds at 175.771 miles per hour during Friday afternoon’s qualifying session. Joey Logano will start 12th in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang.

“That was a good lap in our Wurth Ford,” said Hornish. “We feel as though we are in good shape going into the race tomorrow. We will get together with our teammates and put together a plan on how we will approach race strategy. Ideally, Joey and I can work together all day tomorrow and be there at the end to push for the win.”
