Marcos Ambrose has been getting a good deal of hype going into this Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen, and it’s largely justified based on his record there – two wins, five Top-5s in six career starts.
The Glen represents Ambrose’s best shot in the final regular season races to put his No. 9 Richard Petty Motorsports squad into the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Knowing this, RPM had him and teammate/Chaser-to-be Aric Almirola recently test at the New York State road course. The team is also having him race in Saturday’s Nationwide Series event there along with his Cup duties.
But as the NASCAR AMERICA crew explains in the clip above, he’s definitely not the only threat to win on Sunday.
You can hear from Ambrose himself in today’s episode, which airs at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra.
