Joliet, IL (SportsNetwork. Patric Hornqvist Penguins Jersey .com) - Richard Petty Motorsports revealed on Saturday that Marcos Ambrose will not return as driver of the No. 9 Ford for the team in the Sprint Cup Series in 2015. According to a news release from RPM, Ambrose has informed the organization that he will return to his native home of Australia next year. RPM also noted that it is currently evaluating several driver opportunities for the No. 9, and the team will make a future announcement. Marcos will always be a part of our extended racing family, team co-owner Richard Petty said in a statement. He came over to the United States with his family and dedicated his time here to giving it the best he had each week. I couldnt ask anything more from Marcos and his commitment on and off of the track to our race team and our partners. Away from the track, hes a family person first. Thats something I respect and well miss Marcos, (wife) Sonja and their children (Tabitha and Adelaide). Ambrose has driven for RPM in Sprint Cup since the start of 2011 season. He has two career victories in NASCARs top series, with both of them occurring at Watkins Glen, a road course in Upstate New York. Ambrose finished second to A.J. Allmendinger in last months Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen. First of all, I need to thank everybody at Richard Petty Motorsports. It has been a great four years together, Ambrose said following Saturday mornings Sprint Cup practice session at Chicagoland Speedway. It has been incredible to drive for The King (Richard Petty) and (team sponsors) Stanley, DeWalt and Ford Racing and everybody. The time is just right for me to stop. I feel like the timing is right for myself and my family to return to Australia, and that is what we are going to do. There has been wide speculation for the past several months that Ambrose will return to his home country to compete in the Australian V8 Supercar Series, driving an entry for NASCAR and IndyCar Series team owner Roger Penske. Ambrose is a two-time champion of the V8 Supercar Series, a racing circuit that competes on road courses. He won his titles consecutively from 2003-04, scoring 27 race victories. Today is not the day to talk about anything about my racing future, Ambrose said. I feel like personally this is the right choice for myself and my family to call it a day here in the U.S. and move on to our next chapter. Sprint Cup is at Chicagoland this weekend for the first round in the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Ambrose did not qualify for the Chase, but his teammate, Aric Almirola, made the 16-driver field with a victory in the rain-shortened July race at Daytona International Speedway. Ambrose is currently 23rd in the point standings. Pierre Turgeon Jersey .

In fact the scariest thing this Halloween season has been the play of Eli Manning and his teammates. A Giants team which actually placed a Super Bowl countdown clock in their own locker room and fancied themselves as a legitimate title contender is now at 0-5 a scant five weeks into the season as they prepare to take on the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. Hindsight now says the Giants dream of playing in another Big Game in their own backyard was nothing more than a fairytale, derailed by a perfect storm of injury and ineptitude that has engulfed "Big Blue" and head coach Tom Coughlin. By the end of the Giants latest collapse, an ugly 36-21 setback to lightly regarded NFC East division rival Philadelphia last Sunday at MetLife Stadium, even the North Jersey faithful recognized just how bad things had gotten, serenading its former heroes off the turf with a healthy chorus of boos. "There are only two ways to finish out this season," said veteran defensive lineman Justin Tuck. "Figuring out some kind of way to right this ship and get some positive momentum going here. Or you can sulk and feel sorry for yourself and have the worst season ever in Giants history." New York is 0-5 for the first time since the strike-shortened 1987 season after committing four turnovers that were converted into 17 Eagles points. The Giants now have a league-high 20 giveaways through five games, including 12 Manning interceptions after the struggling quarterback was picked off three times in the fourth quarter against Philly. "Offensively, we just have to take care of the ball better. Its as simple as that," said wide receiver Victor Cruz. "We make plays when we have the ball in our hands and we are pitching and catching, moving the ball up the field. When we turn the ball over, thats when things go awry." The injury-riddled Giants also saw another key player go down against the Eagles when running back David Wilson exited in the first quarter with a neck injury. Wilson has already been ruled out for the Bears. Manning did accumulate 334 yards against Philly despite completing just 24- of-52 attempts and he hit Rueben Randle for a pair of touchdowns in the second half. Hakeem Nicks racked up 142 yards on nine catches in the setback, while Randle put up 96 yards on six grabs. The Bears, meanwhile, are also scuffling a bit, dropping two straight games after a 3-0 start. The latest setback came in the Second City on Sunday when Garrett Hartley booted four field goals and Drew Brees threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns as the New Orleans Saints remained perfect with a 26-18 decision over Chicago. Alshon Jeffery led the way with a franchise-record 218 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches for the Bears. Jay Cutler finished 24-of-33 for 358 yards and had another scoring pass to Brandon Marshall, while Matt Forte totaled 55 yards on 12 carries in defeat. "Against a team like that, the way they played offensively and ate up the clock its hard to rebound if you miss three or four plays in the game," Cutler admitted. This will be the 49th regular season meeting between the Giants and Bears with Chicago holding a 27-19-2 advantage. The Giants have won two straight in the series, however, and their last four at Soldier Field. WHAT TO WATCH FOR This is already the Giants worst start in a non-strike-shortened season since 1979 when Joe Pisarcik kicked off that campaign at quarterback for Ray Perkins until the coach pulled the plug and went to rookie Phil Simms, a move that eventually jump-started the franchise and returned it to relevancy. Barring a hiccup here and there, New York has remained competitive ever since, punctuated by its four Super Bowl championships after the 1986, 1990, 2007 and 2011 seasons. Sidney Crosby Jersey. Another Super Bowl berth is a non-starter now. Since the NFL changed to the current playoff format in 1990, no team has started 0-5 and made it to the postseason. So, perhaps the Giants new goal should be avoiding the franchise- worst 0-9 start of the 1976 team. "Im always going to come out here fighting," safety Antrel Rolle said. "I dont care if we are 0-15. We just need to pick it up. We need to pick it up. Get our head out of our (behind) and pick it up. Thats the reality of it. We are losing games around here and thats not Giants football we are playing." "For us, were not even thinking about the playoffs now," linebacker Spencer Paysinger added. "Right now we are 0-5 and looking for our first win, hopefully coming on Thursday." Things have gotten so bleak that Coughlin, the two-time Super Bowl winning coach, finally pointed the finger of blame at his two-time big game quarterback Manning. "I honestly believe that hes trying so hard to get us a win, hes almost put too much on himself," Coughlin said. "He keeps it all pretty much inside. Im not making excuses. There were a couple of those plays that were terrible." As mentioned Manning threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter versus the Eagles and he is now on pace to give it away 38 times, an almost laughably inefficient performance considering all the changes to the game in recent years that have favored the offense, particularly the passing game. An NFL signal caller hasnt tossed 30-or-more interceptions in a season since 1988, when Vinny Testaverde had 35 for the Buccaneers. Again, though, that was an era when defenses were actually allowed to do some things without seeing yellow -- or last week, pink -- littering the field. To be fair to Manning his offensive line has been awful for most of the season and the running game non-existent. The two-time Super Bowl MVP has completed just 53.7 percent of his passes and been sacked 15 times while New York averages an NFL-low 56.8 rushing yards per game. "Were throwing the ball a lot and were obviously low on running backs right now," Manning said. "I thought we left some plays out there, some balls down the field. I missed a couple -- a couple that were very close to being made. We just have to keep finding ways to make those plays. You dont get a whole lot of second chances in this league." Even with the obvious deficiencies, second chances shouldnt be needed with weapons on the outside like Cruz, Nicks and the emerging Randle. In fact, its hard to buy into the narrative that Manning is trying to lead the Little Sisters of the Poor. "I know I can play better," Manning understated. "Sometimes, things are going to go wrong, but youve got to make the best decision. Throw it away, take a sack. I know I cant keep turning the ball over." The football gods are more than a little ironic, however, and Mannings next test will be in Chicago after a short week of preparation against the NFLs most opportunistic defense. The Bears "D" has 10 interception-return touchdowns since the start of the 2012 season -- the most in the NFL -- and has scored three defensive touchdowns so this season. Chicago failed to take it away against New Orleans for the first time in 11 games but is still third in the NFL with 14 takeaways. "We have to stay positive," Manning said. "We have a short week and we play on Thursday night, so weve just got to keep working and Ive got to start playing better football and making better throws, and putting our team in a better situation to win some games."
