BRISTOL, Tenn. (March 20, 2009) -- Marcos Ambrose will start 13th in his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series short track event at Bristol Motor Speedway. Ambrose posted a time of 15.458 seconds (124.130 mph) in his No. 47 Little Debbie0x00ae Toyota Camry for the Food City 500 on Sunday.

"I'm pretty happy with our efforts today," said Ambrose, who was 30th (15.496 seconds) in first practice. "It's my first time here in a Cup car and I'mpleased to be starting just outside the top 10. We really wanted a strong starting spot because you can go a lap down here really fast. I love this place and it has a great atmosphere. I'm looking forward to Sunday."

Tonight, Ambrose will sign autographs for fans on Friday, March 20th from 6 to 8 p.m. at Bristol Motor Speedway in hospitality village outside turn four for Food City Family Race Night. Admission is free to the public.
