Last August the man from down under after years of late race heartbreak found himself in victory lane at the conclusion of a Sprint Cup road course event. Marcos heads into his fourth season in the Sprint Cup Series with one goal in mind " Win on an oval" Marcos desperately wants to rid himself of the reputation road course ringer. Even though Marcos is coming off a career year, he is faced with the tall task of trying to repeat those same numbers from 2011. It will be even more difficult considering for the 2nd consecutive season RPM has undergone some major wholesale changes. Marcos will have a new teammate when the green flag drops in Daytona in February. RPM looked to be an organization on the rise after both Marcos and former driver of the 43 car A.J. Allmendinger both posted career years. Although Marcos has showed flashes of brilliance on oval tracks with both RPM,and JTG racing. I don't think 2012 will be the year he breaks through with an oval win. Good luck Marcos I'll be rooting for you!
