I have never regretted having anyone associated with auto racing on our show; but there are certain people in NASCAR that I just can't wait to talk to. Kenny Wallace is one elusive dude, but I thought I had him set up for last nights show until the stupid COT testing at Richmond got in the way. Oh well--I'll keep working his PR people down until they succumb. He would have been only part of a great "daily double".
The other driver I couldn't wait to talk to was Marcos Ambrose and last night was the night. I knew going in Marcos had a great sense of humor and would be fun to talk with. He didn't disappoint. The "Australian Turtle" gave us his views on his rapid rise from two-time Australian V8 Supercar champ to www.drive.com.au
2006 CTS rookie to his current 7th in points in the Busch Series.
Marcos shared his thoughts on a variety of topics including his projected attempts to run the two Cup road races this year at Infineon Raceway and Watkins Glen; and how he has adapted so quickly to running ovals. Until he showed up at Martinsville last year, he had never run on an oval. I'd say you're a pretty quick study mate.
