AMBROSE MAKES SOLID START TO NASHVILLE WEEKEND

Team Australia's Marcos Ambrose has made a solid start to proceedings for the Pepsi 300 with a strong run in practice at Nashville Superspeedway in Lebanon, Tennessee today.

Ambrose was 16th fastest in both main practice sessions in the Aussie Vineyards-backed #59 Kingsford Charcoal Ford Fusion at Nashville as well as fourth fastest in rookie practice.

In both main sessions, the Australian was the second-fastest Raybestos Rookie of the Year contender.

Ambrose and the Aussie Vineyards-backed #59 Kingsford team kept improving the car over the course of the day's practice and are confident of a strong run tomorrow.

Ambrose finished third at his last visit to the Nashville Superspeedway, gaining third in August last year at the concrete surfaced speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Ford drivers Carl Edwards and Stephen Leight topped both of today's major practice sessions, with Shane Huffman fastest in Rookie Practice.

Qualifying will be run tomorrow and be followed by the Pepsi 300, the seventh race in the 2007 NASCAR Busch Series.

"It was a pretty good day overall and we did a lot of work on things over the day," said Ambrose.

"The Kingsford car ran well and we were making gains as a team over the course of the day. If we keep this up the goal will be to qualify in the top 10 tomorrow.

"This track feels really good to drive and for whatever reason it suits my style quite well. I always feel comfortable around here and I've got a good feel for the car here in practice.

"It's all looking good and with the way this team keeps improving I think we can look towards a good result tomorrow. We'll certainly be giving it our very best effort."
