OAKS, PA October 26, 2009 . . . Motorsports 2010 presented by Street Blaze 100 Race Car & Trade Show is getting some international flair.

Marcos Ambrose, 33, of Tasmania, who is a regular on the NASCAR Sprint Car Series, will make a stop a the three-day trade show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa., on Saturday, January 23rd, from 1-3 p.m.

In addition, Ambrose will be joined by his crew chief Frankie Kerr, who has a successful Modified and Sprint Car history at various dirt tracks throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Ambrose is considered one of the best Australian V8 Supercar drivers in history. Before coming to the United States to race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Ambrose won the 2003 and 2004 Australian Supercar titles and he’s credited for virtually single-handedly reviving Ford Racing in Australia.

In 2006, Ambrose made history by finishing third in a Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway. It was the first time a non-American driver finished in the top five in a series race. He has since gone on to score two Nationwide Series events, both coming at the Watkins Glen Road course.
Ambrose currently ranks 17th in the Sprint Cup standings in the JTG Daugherty Toyota. He has recorded four top-five times, including a second-place finish at Watkins Glen and a third place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.
