Sam Hornish Jr. Gains Sponsors for 2015 myAFibRisk.com 400 at Chicagoland

Richard Petty Motorsports announced on Tuesday that Walmart, along with its numerous consumer brands, will serve as sponsors on the No. 9 Ford Fusion at the Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday.

The sponsorship will feature Blue-Emu, SlimFast and Natrol throughout the No. 9 that will be driven by Sam Hornish Jr. at the 1.5-mile oval. While two of these sponsors are new, Blue-Emu will make a return.

This also marks the first time that SlimFast and Natrol are represented in the NASCAR industry.

“Our job this weekend is to give everyone associated with the No. 9 team a good finish,” said Hornish in a release. “The opportunity to put Walmart in the spotlight in Chicagoland is special, and I’m thankful for Blue-Emu, SlimFast and Natrol, LLC for all they did to make this happen.”

Hornish missed the 2015 Chase last weekend at Richmond International Raceway by failing to win a race in the first 26 races or slot into a top-16 wild card position. He is currently ranked 27th in Sprint Cup points with three top 10s in his first full-time season in the series since 2010.
