...to buy some tickets in Kansas today, although he's selling more than seats to the IndyCar race.

Kansas Speedway has “hired” three-time IndyCar Series champion and defending Kansas Lottery Indy 300 winner Sam Hornish, Jr. to work in the Kansas Speedway ticket office. Hornish replaces NASCAR driver Greg Biffle, who had to leave the position due to his racing schedule.

Hornish, who is the only driver to win the IndyCar Series championship three times and also won the 2006 Indianapolis 500, is scheduled to work in the ticket office on April 11 from 4 - 5 p.m. Fans are encouraged to buy their 2007 RPM season tickets from Hornish either via phone or in person at the Kansas Speedway ticket office. Hornish, who is running a part-time NASCAR Busch Series schedule, will also be selling Sprint Fan Walk and Pit Stop Pub tickets.

“He may not be completely familiar with our grandstands yet, but he knows his way around the race track, which will enable him to help fans pick out their favorite spots to watch the race.” (MORE)
