Ambrose’s Tums pain
Fading brakes and a tangle with Matt Kenseth ended Marcos Ambrose’s hopes of a strong result in the Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on Monday. Ambrose finished 27th in the the 500-lap race on the smaller half-mile oval. It was an up and down weekend for the former V8 Supercar racer. He was eighth fastest in the sole practice session, but qualified a lowly 34th. Ambrose is 17th in the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points with four races to go.
