This "Wednesday WAG of the Week" is married to a 3-time IRL champion who’s now fighting for a Nationwide Series title.
Crystal and Sam are high school sweethearts. The two attended Archbold High School (Archbold, OH) and were marred in 2004 … just a week after the Indianapolis 500. Last May, Crystal was a guest on a special Mother’s Day edition of "Trackside". She talked about being a NASCAR wife, raising a family on the road and even dishes a little dirt on Sam.
Congrats to Crystal Hornish, the Shake and Bake "Wednesday WAG of the Week". For a full photo gallery, click here.
