Ambrose Sports Special Bucket Hat for Aussie Army Stationed in Afghanistan

LOUDON, N.H. (June 26, 2009) -- This week Marcos Ambrose received a letter and a camouflage Army bucket that he is wearing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway that came from the Australian Embeds Task Force 633 International Security Assistance Force in Kabul, Afghanistan. Since arriving in Afghanistan, the Task Force has been following the success of the JTG-Daugherty Racing team and Ambrose.

The letter expressed thanks to JTG-Daugherty Racing for their support of the Australian troops and of an Australian driver. They also thanked the team for reminding them of the 'enjoyable things in life' and 'making a difference in their lives.'

"Some Aussie troops from Afghanistan sent the bucket hat to me as a good luck charm for this weekend at New Hampshire," said Ambrose, who wore the hat yesterday on his flight to Manchester (N.H.) and today in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage. "I'm wearing it to support them and they've been wearing my Little Debbie hat to support us. They wished us the best of luck this season and told us that they have our backs."
