AMBROSE KEEN TO TACKLE THE MONSTER MILE

Marcos Ambrose always looks forward to races at the fast, tough one-mile Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware.

This weekend's Autism Speaks 400 is no exception, with the Australian driver excited about his prospects ahead of his second start at the track known as 'The Monster Mile'.

Ambrose has a history of solid results at the one-mile, concrete surfaced speedway, with his 2007 effort in the Nationwide Series standing out as a stellar performance, where he qualified in third place and finished in sixth position.

MICHAEL WALTRIP RACING RIDING HIGH AFTER DEBUT WIN --

Ambrose and his #47 JTG Daugherty Racing crew took satisfaction from David Reutimann's win in the rain-shortened Coca-Cola 600 at Lowe's Motor Speedway last weekend.

JTG Daugherty Racing shares a technical alliance with MWR, with all of Ambrose's #47 entries are built and prepared out of the MWR facility in Cornelius, North Carolina.

With Ambrose and Reutimann effectively team-mates of sorts -- or 'stablemates' -- Ambrose and his #47 crew were pleased to see the #00 Aaron's team visit Victory Lane on Memorial Day in one of the biggest events of the season.

AMBROSE RUNS FIFTH #47 LIVERY FOR 2009--

Ambrose will take to the track in his fifth livery of the season in Dover this weekend, debuting the #47 RaceSavers.com entry of JTG Daugherty Racing.

RaceSavers.com will launch this weekend in conjunction with the blue and red livery hitting the race track.

The online marketing brand is a project of JTG Daugherty Racing's well-renowned marketing team, in collaboration with several NASCAR sponsors.

WHAT MARCOS HAS TO SAY:

"Dover is a track that I always look forward to," said Ambrose.

"It's quite unique with its configuration and surface. It's quite 'racey' and when you have your car working well there and you're fully committed and pushing hard, it's very rewarding.

"We have had an up and down few weeks, with a crash in Darlington and the rainout in Charlotte.

"I'm confident that the pace is still there, we just need to get a good run going in Dover and get a good result on the board to get the momentum going again."
