INDIANAPOLIS – Former IndyCar Series champion and Indianapolis 500 winner Sam Hornish Jr. said Friday his future in NASCAR remains unclear.

Hornish, who drives the No. 77 Dodge for Penske Racing, said he does not know whether he will be back in the Sprint Cup Series next season, particularly as his team remains without a sponsor for the 2011 season.

"I hope I'm here in a stock car," Hornish said when asked whether he would be back at Indy next season in a stock car or Indy car. "I'd definitely like to be back in the Sprint Cup Series."

In two-plus seasons in Cup, Hornish has two top-five and seven top-10 finishes in 91 career starts.
