CONCORD, N.C. – Marcos Ambrose heads to Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway looking to turn his season around. Despite bad luck in the first nine races, he still sits 23rd in points, just 76 points outside of a Chase spot. With 17 races left, and two wild card spots, the No. 9 Stanley Ford team should still be considered a serious threat.
The team has also proved to be very strong both in qualifying and early in races. Ambrose hasn’t qualified worse than 15th in the last four races and has raced in the top-10 before problems have forced the team to undeserved finishes. But, coming into Talladega, Ambrose has just as good of a chance at a win than anyone.
Ambrose has posted eight previous starts at the 2.66-mile superspeedway with a best finish of fourth in his track debut in 2009. The No. 9 Stanley Ford tallied a third-place starting spot and 14th-place finish in the spring event last season.
