Sam Hornish wins E15 250 at Iowa

By Jason D Searcy


Sam Hornish didn't even have his name above the door of his race car at Iowa Speedway.  He was a late replacement driver for the #18 Joe Gibbs Xfinity series car filling in for the injured Matt Tifft.



Hornish had the best car all day, he lead 183 laps.  He became emotional during the post race talking about  how important it was for him to have his entire family (his 3 kids and his wife) enjoy the victory lane celebration with him.
