Hornish not interested in Franchitti's spot

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - Sam Hornish Jr. crossed off every goal in IndyCar before leaving the series for NASCAR.

With three championships and an Indianapolis 500 victory, Hornish felt there was nothing left to achieve.

Now, with one of the best seats in the series suddenly open, Hornish hasn't changed his mind.

He said Friday he has no interest in returning to IndyCar to replace Dario Franchitti at Target Chip Ganassi Racing. Hornish said the team reached out to his representatives this week when Franchitti was told by doctors he can no longer race because of the risk of injury is too great.

But even as Hornish heads into the final race of the season with no job lined up for next year, he said a return to IndyCar is not in his plans.
