Jacob Companies will once again adorn the No. 9 Ford this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. The full-service general contractor made its first appearance with the team earlier this year at Sonoma Raceway, where Sam Hornish Jr. earned a 10th-place finish.
This weekend, Hornish will be making his eighth Sprint Cup Series start at Talladega. Earlier this year, he scored his first Top-10 finish of the season and his best series finish at the Superspeedway of sixth. Hornish also has four XFINITY Series starts at Talladega, accumulating one pole and one Top-Five finish.
Fans will have two chances to see Hornish around the track this weekend. He'll be at the Ford Performance display in the Fan Zone from 9:10 to 9:25 a.m. and at the pre-race stage on the frontstretch for a Q&A session from 10:15 to 10:30 a.m.
This weekend, @Jacob_Companies returns to the #9 Ford at @TalladegaSuperS. #NASCAR

"I'm excited to head back to Talladega. We finished sixth there earlier this year, and it's no secret that RPM has a great Superspeedway program, so we have a really good chance for another good finish this weekend. There's going to be a lot of different agendas, but as long as we stay out of trouble, I'm confident we'll be right there competing for a win at the end of the race.
"We have Jacob Companies returning to the No. 9 Ford this weekend. They were with us in Sonoma and brought us some good luck. We're hoping that good luck follows us to Talladega, and we bring home a strong finish."
