An Aussie overseas

Quick update on Aussie NASCAR Truck Series competitor Marcos Ambrose. Last time out at Charlotte, his first super-speedway, he qualified an astonishing third! Sadly, a crash on lap 4 ended his race. From this, it's clear he has the speed to do well. Now he just needs to learn his NASCAR racecraft.

Team Australia have signed on to sponsor Marcos, and his truck appeared in it's green and yellow livery for the first time. Hopefully the bright colours will stop other competitors from running into him, like at Martinsville and Gateway, when he was in an anonymous white truck.

Next race is this coming weekend at Mansfield Speedway in Ohio. Unfortunately this is a 1/2 mile oval, and it appears so far that Marcus does better on wide, fast, long tracks than these rinky-dink excuses for a racetrack.
