Safe in Texas

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

LUCK has turned around for Aus­tralian Mar­cos Am­brose with a 12th place in a dra­matic Texas 500 NASCAR race at the week­end. Af­ter sev­eral weeks of me­chan­i­cal fail­ures and crashes, Am­brose brought his Toy­ota Camry home un­scathed for his best Sprint Cup re­sult since Rich­mond at the start of Septem­ber. The race fea­tured a fist fight be­tween Chevro­let driv­ers Jeff Bur­ton and Jeff Gor­don, while Kyle Busch spun his Toy­ota, was pe­nalised for speed­ing in pit lane and docked two more laps for an in­ap­pro­pri­ate ges­ture to­wards an of­fi­cial. The race was won by Denny Ham­lin (Toy­ota), who now leads the Chase for the Sprint Cup ahead of Jim­mie John­son (Chevro­let) with only two events re­main­ing.
