Marcos Ambrose's Gas Man Penalized

Danielle hendersonCorrespondent IMarch 10, 2009

Sunday's Kobalt Tools 500 was significantly impacted when the gas man for the No. 47 Toyota, driven by Marcos Ambrose, ran across pit road and through the infield grass. He was only 70 feet away from the racetrack, and was attempting to retrieve a loose tire. 

The race was under green flag conditions.

Matt Kenseth asked, "Has he seen us race before?"

Kasey Kahne said, "Maybe he's new."

All I know is that when there are cars going 190+ miles per hour, I will be far away from the track.

NASCAR took him out of competition for the remainder of the race, and announced today that he will be suspended for the next four races.
