Penske still undecided about points switch

Team owner Roger Penske said Saturday he hasn't decided if he'll move No. 2-Kurt Busch's points to Sam Hornish Jr. to guarantee the driver a spot in the first five races of next season.

Hornish is leaving the IndyCar Series for a full NASCAR schedule next season, but his No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge won't be one of the 35 cars locked into the first five races of the year. As a former series champion, Busch has a provisional that he could fall back on should he fail to qualify on speed.

"We have a number of options and we're looking at all of them ... we'll see," Penske said at Phoenix International Raceway. "This isn't all about the first five races. This is about a long career for a great race car driver and someone who has delivered for us for a long time at Penske Racing."
