Australians in NASCAR (Xfinity races in the USA)

Marcos Ambrose

Marcos was King of Watkins Glen by winning three races in a row at the famous road course and a fourth a few years later, he also won a race in Montreal.

Bad luck prevented him from winning a couple more races in Canada such as the clash with Robby Gordon as the two spun each other out of the lead and a last corner mistake allowed Carl Edwards to sneak through for the win.

Marcos won for both Ford and Toyota by winning for JTG Daugherty Racing (#47) and Richard Petty Motorsports (#9 and #09).

James Davison

James has ran in six Xfinity races from 2016 to 2022 with his best finish being 4th twice for Joe Gibbs Racing with those finishes coming at Mid-Ohio and Charlotte.

Owen Kelly

Owen has had two Top 5 finishes with a fourth place finish in the #54 for Joe Gibbs Racing being Owen’s best result.

Kenny Habul

Kenny ran in fifteen races in the series with his best finish being 14th, a result that he had achieved twice.

Kenny is known for his JGR Toyota catching fire after a crash and remarking in an interview that he would have a Scotch afterwards.
