CONCORD, N.C. – Marcos Ambrose earned a spot in this weekend’s Sprint All-Star Race with his dramatic win at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International last season. The road course ace wheeled passed Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski in the final turns to capture his second consecutive win at the New York road course.
Ambrose will head into this weekend with one thing on his mind – winning. In his eight starts at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, the Australian native has collected one top-five and two top-10 finishes, all with the No. 9 team. He posted his best start of second last spring and best finish of fifth in the fall of 2011. Crew Chief Drew Blickensderfer has also been successful at the 1.5-mile track. In his six starts as a crew chief, he tallied two top-five and three top-10 finishes.
The No. 9 DEWALT Ford team competed in last year’s All-Star Race, raced in the top-10 for the majority of the night and posted a seventh-place finish.
