NSS Aaron's312 TALLADEGA

AMBROSE HAS EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS ON THE SUPERSPEEDWAY


24/04/2008

AMBROSE THIRD FASTEST IN BOTH PRACTICE SESSIONS AT TALLADEGA

Marcos Ambrose has made a terrific start to the Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway by posting the third fastest time in both practice sessions held today in Talladega, Alabama.

The Australian showed strong pace in the #59 Kingsford Hickory Ford Fusion around the 2.66-mile superspeedway, an encouraging sign ahead of tomorrow’s qualifying.

Ambrose is coming off the back of his best ever NASCAR finish after claiming second place in Mexico City last weekend and is looking to continue that strong momentum into Talladega as he aims to leap into the top 10 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series points standings.

Steve Wallace and Jason Leffler topped today’s two practice sessions. Qualifying will be held tomorrow before the Aaron’s 312 is held on Saturday (Sunday morning Australian time).

“It’s good to roll the car out of the hauler and be quick straight up,” said Ambrose.

“We’ve got a lot of confidence from last weekend’s result and the team is working great, so it’s important that we keep that going.

“Practice speeds don’t mean a lot at a place like Talladega. It’s good to be at the top of the charts but having a strong race car in the last half of the race is the priority.”

Lepage apologizes for Nationwide Series accident

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Kevin Lepage apologized Sunday for starting a 15-car accident in the Nationwide Series that he initially insisted wasn't his fault.

Lepage started the crash at Talladega Superspeedway when he was coming out of the pits with 47 laps to go Saturday. He tried to blend back onto the track as the pack of traffic raced toward Turn 1, effectively entering the racing line at half the speed the rest of the cars were traveling.

Carl Edwards practically ran over Lepage's car to trigger the massive wreck (watch video). Lepage insisted it wasn't his fault, but took responsibility after reviewing the footage and called it the biggest mistake he's made in his 25 years of racing.

"After reviewing the tapes of the accident I realize I need to apologize to NASCAR, the car owners, my fellow competitors and, most importantly, the fans," he said in a statement released by his team, Specialty Racing. "I made a huge driver error by blending onto the racetrack in the wrong area. This caused a multi-car accident and changed the outcome of the race for many teams.

"I'm so thankful that no one was hurt considering the number of cars involved."

Lepage vowed not to make the same mistake again, and said not accepting blame initially made him look like a "heel."

"There is not a single person to blame for this huge mistake except myself," he said. "I have worked very hard over the years to gain the respect of NASCAR, the owners, competitors and the fans, and it will take a long time to gain it back after what happened."

Lepage said if he could do it over, he would have let the leaders by before blending on to the track.


Vets should know not to do stupid things like that, maybe he wan't get another drive this year in this series?
