Marcos Ambrose chats with The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pepsi Max 400 on October 9, 2010 in Fontana, California. (Credit: Todd Warshaw/Getty Images for NASCAR)I interviewed Marcos Ambrose, driver of the No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing Toyota, right after the first practice session on the Friday before the Pepsi Max 400 at Auto Club Speedway. I got the distinct impression that he wasn’t very happy with his car and I think you might get that idea too after you check out his answers to the ITAS

Still, he had some fun answers and this was the first time I’ve ever had to go to the dictionary (well, dictionary.com) to find out how to properly spell a person's response.
