With Marcos Ambrose Back in a Ford competing in the second biggest form of 4 wheel motor racing in the world I thought it would be timely to create a thread dedicated to synchronised tailgaiting, otherwise known as NASCAR. I'll try and update this each week.

Any Nascar fans out there? This is your space to comment on the season so far, in particular the performance of Ambrose, or anything nascar related.

So is his first name Marcus, or Marcos.

I suppose him being in the states, a bit of hispanic support wouldn't hurt.

It's Marcos. Don't exactly know the heritage but its got a definite European tinge to it. Could be Italian or greek, could even be serb for all I care.

And oops I meant a booboo. There's only one JJ, the other JJ is actually AJ Allmandinger. But still the one eyed yanks love him.

And don't worry about the Melbournians, oops I meant gringo's. They have Montoya to cheer for.

Marcos Ambrose bounced back to form at ‘The Track Too Tough To Tame', with a hard earned 13th place finish in the Showtime Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

Displaying strong car speed throughout, a vibration hindered the Australian's charge in the closing stages, before a carnage filled run to the chequered flag in which he edged out Dale Earnhardt Jnr.

"We just fought all night. We were digging and gauging all night," Marcos Ambros said.

"We're disappointed with 13th, so I guess that's a good thing.

"I'm proud of my Stanley team and we'll take our licks here and move on.

"We just kept digging and fighting all night.

"We tried not to damage the car, and most of what we got was on the last lap, so we had a good night.

"We'll learn from it and come back next year and be better."

After an outstanding qualifying effort that saw the Stanley Ford Fusion line up from the third row at the green flag, Ambrose held position in the opening exchanges until the first caution for the spun car of Mike Skinner on lap five of 367.

Subsequent to a tough battle with Tony Stewart on the restart, Ambrose lost ground as the car was hitting the ground until adjustments were applied in the pits under the second caution, which was for JJ Yeley's smoking car on lap 35.

Ambrose restarted the race from 17th position on lap 42, and after initially gaining positions he lost ground when Matt Kenseth slid up into the number nine machine exiting turn four.

This sent Kenseth to the pits with a flat tyre, and Ambrose down the leader board with a loss of momentum.

The third yellow flag period flew on lap 74 when David Gilliland hit the wall, with the caution slowing the field again on lap 83 when Juan Montoya sent Jimmie Johnson spinning.

The next caution was on lap 124 for debris on the track, with Ambrose gaining three positions in the pits to resume in 15th.

Ambrose made a strong restart to leap up into 12th within one lap, with the adjustments made to the car proving successful as he was the fastest car on the track prior to pitting under green flag conditions.

A slick service by the Richard Petty Motorsports crew saw Ambrose merge back into the traffic in tenth position.

The sixth caution appeared on lap 220 when Johnson spun for the second time, with Ambrose gaining another position in the pits, restarting the race from eighth.

The seventh caution appeared on lap 230 when David Ragan and Brian Vickers connected, while the yellows flashed on again eight laps later when Logano slid up into Ambrose and spun.

Ambrose continued on undamaged, and pitted under the caution for new tyres, resuming in 15th place.

The yellows flashed on again for the ninth time on lap 279 when Mark Martin smacked the wall, with Ambrose continuing on from the restart in 15th place with a terrible vibration, which hindered his forward progress.

Following from a green flag stop, Ambrose found himself in 13th position when Jeff Burton's Chevrolet expired.

Burton's team mates didn't fare well on the restart, with Clint Bowyer hitting the inside wall, and Kyle Busch spinning Kevin Harvick into the outside one.

The race then went into over time with a green-white-chequered flag finish, which saw Ambrose on track for a top-ten finish until last lap contact with Bobby Labonte on the back straight.

Ambrose managed to gather himself up, edging out Earnhardt Jnr by only 0.038sec at the chequered flag.

Regan Smith held on for his maiden Sprint Cup victory, holding out Carl Edwards in a grand stand finish.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series continues next week at Dover International Speedway with the FedEx 400 benefitting Autism Speaks.


Did anyone see the dust up between Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch? OneHD ended their telecast just as the pair were facing off on pit road. Here's what we didn't get to see.

Busch, Harvick admonished after post-race feud

http://www.nascar.com/news/110508/kybus ... index.html

Quote:
DARLINGTON, S.C. -- A wild race weekend that began with one driver allegedly throwing a punch at another during a meeting in the NASCAR hauler ended with another heated meeting between a different pair of feuding drivers as Saturday night turned into early Sunday morning at Darlington Raceway.

Saturday's meeting with officials in the NASCAR hauler included drivers Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch and the respective owners of their cars -- Richard Childress and Joe Gibbs. It occurred after Harvick and Busch tangled both during Saturday's Showtime Southern 500 and afterward, and the crews of the drivers' two teams exchanged heated words and a few hard shoves in the garage area before being separated by NASCAR officials.
Get your Winner's gear!

Immediately after the race while they were still on pit road, Harvick jumped out of his car and ran to Busch's car, where attempted to throw a punch through Busch's driver's side window. Busch responded by punching the gas to get away and punted Harvick's car out of the way, sending it smashing into an inside retaining wall.

As fate would have it, the haulers for the two teams were parked side by side in the garage. As soon as Harvick arrived on the scene -- and shortly after several members of both teams had to be separated following all the angry shouting and shoving -- Harvick charged toward Busch's hauler and challenged his entire team to a fight.

"Y'all are a bunch of [expletives]!" Harvick exclaimed.

"You are coming with us to our hauler now," a NASCAR official interjected, and off Harvick went. He later was followed by Childress, Busch and Joe Gibbs. They all met with NASCAR president Mike Helton and other NASCAR officials for about 20 minutes.

Spokesman Kerry Tharp of NASCAR said it will be determined this Tuesday if the teams and drivers will be assessed any fines and/or penalties.

"We had a discussion with them, more about what happened post-race than anything during it," Tharp said. "It's right after the race. We wanted to have both of them in there to talk about that. As our practice is, we'll get back to Concord [N.C]) and have our meeting and if there is anything more to come out of it, it will at that time. And if it doesn't, it won't."

The madness began on Lap 365 of the race that was scheduled for 367 laps but went for 370 because of the green-white-checkered finish the accident produced. Harvick, Busch and Clint Bowyer were battling for sixth place when Harvick appeared to clip Busch a little from behind, slowing Busch's car just enough that Harvick was able to get to his side door. Bowyer made it three-wide as the three cars came out of Turn 4 and entered the frontstretch.

My choices were limited. I was either going to get punched in the face and then wait for Harvick to get back in his car, or just drive through his car and push it out of the way so I could get out of there.

-- KYLE BUSCH

Bowyer then appeared to bounce off Harvick and wrecked. And in the aftermath it appeared the Busch deliberately turned Harvick.

"It was tight racing after the restart there and Harvick was up on the top, a little bit loose, and I gave him room," Busch said. "He kind of came off the wall -- that's a bad angle, obviously -- and then lifted early to let me go into Turn 3 and I thought it was all good. Then he drives into the back of me there, so ... it made my car loose all the way through the exit, and just made a run for those two guys to get back on my inside.

"And then obviously Clint wrecked, bouncing off Harvick. It was just uncalled-for; it was unacceptable racing. I know it's the last couple of laps, but I gave him room coming off [Turn] 2 and I didn't get the room."

Harvick obviously saw it differently but opted to say little to the media after emerging from the post-race meeting.

"Obviously we were just racing hard and doing what we had to do at the end. And things happen. That's it," Harvick said.

Asked what got discussed with Busch, Joe Gibbs and NASCAR officials in the NASCAR hauler, Harvick grinned and said: "Not much."

Pressed for further comment, he declined. "I don't have anything to tell you other than not much," he said.

Asked if he was worried about possible penalties or fines from NASCAR, Harvick replied: "Not really."

Then he added: "I don't have any answers for you. I'm really excited for [race winner] Regan Smith, and I hate that you're not over there [in the media center] talking to him."

Busch had a bit more to say, actually taking the time to speak with the media before going into the meeting in the NASCAR hauler. He then elaborated further afterward.

"I hated it that we tore up a few good cars there," Busch said. "Our Doublemint Camry was so good today that we should have run up front, we should have finished up front. But we kind of got mired back in traffic there and had to fight our way back. It was a really good, clean night. I probably passed the most cars tonight -- but there was one I couldn't pass."

At that point in the interview, Joe Gibbs tugged at Busch's sleeve and told him it was time to head to the NASCAR hauler -- where earlier in the weekend driver Ryan Newman allegedly threw a punch at driver Juan Montoya during another meeting designed to defuse a potentially explosive situation.

"That's fine. Good to hash it out now. Might as well," Busch said.

Busch said later that he tried to avoid Harvick after the race, and that he had no reverse gear operational in his car.

I don't have any answers for you. I'm really excited for [race winner] Regan Smith, and I hate that you're not over there [in the media center] talking to him.

-- KEVIN HARVICK

"I was just trying to get away from the situation with Harvick and unfortunately he got to pit road before me -- so I pulled in behind him," Busch said. "[Harvick] let the 47 [car of driver Bobby Labonte] go, but I knew if I tried to turn left or right he was going to run into me or block me or something. I just stayed behind him. I was just going to sit there, not worry about it and let him cool his head for a second and let him figure out that we just needed to go back to the garage area.

"Instead of him doing that, he wanted to get out of his car, I guess, and wanted to fight. I knew that wasn't going to be a good situation. ... My choices were limited. I was either going to get punched in the face and then wait for Harvick to get back in his car, or just drive through his car and push it out of the way so I could get out of there."

Busch said he regretted the fact that he might have placed some standers-by in danger by doing so.

"Unfortunately there were some men walking down pit road. I hate it that somebody could have gotten hurt, but I was just trying to get away from it and get back to my hauler and go on with my own business," Busch said.

Tharp later described what transpired during the post-race meeting. He did not sound as if NASCAR was too upset with all the emotions on display during the Darlington race weekend.

"Let's put it this way: it was a discussion where they both aired their opinions, voiced their opinions," Tharp said. "To have them be able to do that after the race is a good thing. And to look at it again is also a good thing. It was in the heat of the moment.

"It's been a good weekend here at Darlington. There was a lot going on."

Tharp added that he does not think the drivers are getting out of hand in this era, begun last year, in which NASCAR officials essentially have told them to police themselves on the track.

"I think the drivers have done a real good job managing it. I really do," Tharp said. "There may be a time when we need to step in and talk about some things. We had a couple of those occasions this weekend -- but I think they way they have conducted themselves on the race track in general has been really good. There is a lot of competition going on. The competition has probably never been better than it is in the sport right now. Getting into the Chase [for the Sprint Cup], getting those race wins is important to all of them.

"I think the people here at Darlington [Saturday night] saw a heck of a race. We had a first-time winner in Regan Smith. You saw a lot of good cars up front running, and a lot emotions flying at the end of the race. This is a tough race. It's 501 miles and four hours on the race track, and it'll test your nerves."

Bowyer concurred with that thought.

"It's the nature of the beast," Bowyer said. "There's no room to race at the end. I knew when the caution came out [on Lap 359], all hell was going to break loose. And it did."

Is therre someone out there that that knows more about this than me. I know how the owner pojnts system works but the problem is, when you think owner you instantly think team owner. Ambrose and Almendinger both drive for Richard Petty, yet Almendinger is starting from 2nd and Ambrose from 18th. What gives?

Racing from 3:00am Monday morning AEST.

Don't forget to vote for Ambrose (or your other fave Ford drivers) to give him a spot in the Allstar race. The Allstar race is a mid season no points race (instead they race for a million bucks) is a race open to race winners (either as a driver or a car owner) from the previous season as well as the current season, plus the past ten event winners and past decade's Cup Series champions. Drivers are also eligible if they are one of the top two finishers in the Sprint Showdown qualifying race (a 40-lap race in two 20-lap segments for drivers not qualified for the main event) or remain on the lead lap in the Sprint Showdown and get the most votes in a fan vote.

The qualifying race is held on Saturday night (sunday morning our time) at Charlotte motor speedway. Lets get cracking and get behind the most successful Aussie to ever compete in Nascar.

Time to get voting
