Recapping Marcos Ambrose's teasing Montreal history

What has Marcos done to make the gods at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve mad?

Ambrose had the fastest car in the early stages of Sunday's Nationwide race, but was ultimately felled by alternator problems. It was just another bad result for Ambrose, who's quickly becoming to the track in the middle of the St. Lawrence River what Dale Earnhardt was to Daytona before breaking through in 1998.

In 2007, Ambrose got into Robby Gordon as the two battled for the lead and Gordon returned the favor while ignoring NASCAR's orders to move back in the field as Ambrose was leading, potentially costing Ambrose the win.

In the rain-soaked 2008 race, Ambrose was running well until he got caught for speeding on pit road, ruining his chances for the win.
And in 2009, Ambrose had the lead going into that final chicane on the last lap but curb hopped the car on the first corner, allowing Carl Edwards to slip by and grab the win.
There's always next year, Marcos.
