FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Sam Hornish Junior, the defending
IndyCar Series champion, earned his first victory of the season by
winning the Bombardier Learjet 550. That's his IndyCar Series-best
19th career victory.
Hornish led 159 of 228 laps in a dominating race. He held off a
late charge from Tony Kanaan and Danica Patrick.
Hornish is the first three-time winner at Texas Motor Speedway,
but hadn't won at the track since 2002.
