Ambrose will head into this weekend with one thing on his mind - winning. In his eight starts at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, the Australian native has collected one top-five and two top-10 finishes, all with the No. 9 team. He posted his best start of second last spring and best finish of fifth in the fall of 2011. Crew Chief Drew Blickensderfer has also been successful at the 1.5-mile track. In his six starts as a crew chief, he tallied two top-five and three top-10 finishes.

The No. 9 DEWALT Ford team competed in last year's All-Star Race, raced in the top-10 for the majority of the night and posted a seventh-place finish.

Richard Petty will team up with Ambrose to host Make-A-Wish child Jacob from Sumner, Ga. Jacob wished to watch a race and meet Petty and his race team. Jacob will meet both Petty and Ambrose this weekend and be a VIP guest of the No. 9 DEWALT Ford team.

Comments from Stanley Ford Fusion Driver Marcos Ambrose:

"I'm really excited for the All-Star Race. We have shown a lot of speed on the mile-and-a-half tracks this year, and I'm thrilled to have a race where we just go for the win. There is a heightened excitement around this race, and I'm proud to be a part of it. We had a lot of fun in last year's event and raced up there with the best of them. We plan on being up front again this weekend and contend for the million dollar prize."

Comments from Crew Chief Drew Blickensderfer on the All-Star Race:

"We are bringing the car we tested at Charlotte in January. We haven't raced this car yet, but we were fast at the test. We've showed speed all season at the mile-and-a-half tracks and should come off the truck fast again this weekend. This weekend is a great opportunity for us to really shine. We're all anxious to see what happens."

Chassis History:

The No. 9 team prepared chassis No. 804 for the All-Star Race. The team tested this chassis at Charlotte Motor Speedway in January where they posted the fourth fastest speed of the day.
