29 | 11 | 2010 - FROSTY FIRED UP FOR CHAMPIONSHIP DECIDER

Ford Performance Racing's Mark Winterbottom is still in with a chance to take out the 2010 V8 Supercar Championship this weekend at the Sydney Telstra 500 but knows everything will have to fall his way if he is to take home the title on Sunday afternoon.
Frosty trails championship leader James Courtney by just 203 points, with second-placed Jamie Whincup 150 points in front – a maximum of 300 points is on offer over the two x 250km races on Saturday and Sunday.
"It would take some kind of miracle for me to take out the championship this weekend ... but stranger things have happened," Frosty said.
"It's such a tough circuit ... last year only 16 drivers finished the race on Sunday and I was the only guy to finish on the podium both days so if we could have a repeat of that with me at the top and the others by the wayside well it would be a very good weekend!," Frosty quipped.
"This weekend's always a special one for me as it's basically my home event ... I grew up just 15 minutes down the road so my old friends and family all turn out to support me which always goes down well – I'm one of the few Sydneysiders in the championship so you always look at it as playing on your home ground," he said.
Steve Richards in the #6 Dunlop Super Dealer FPR Falcon will also be looking to finish his season on a high this weekend after showing some promising speed of late.
"Going on past experience, the car will be really suited to the Homebush street circuit so we're hoping for some strong results to end the year on," Richo said.
"The car was amazing on the Gold Coast so if that is any gauge to go by we should be back at the front which is where you want to be at a place like this," he added.
The FPR Falcons will first hit the track on Friday for the first of four 30 minute practice sessions.
