Nationwide: Now Ambrose conquers Montreal

"I guess Steve Wallace hasn't learned how to brake, so he spun me at the hairpin," Carpentier said. "After that, I just lost it, ran people over and they ran me over back. It's one of those deals."

Carpentier's crew chief Jerry Baxter staged one of the oddest bits of retribution on Wallace post-race, when he reached into the window of the #66 on pit road and started pulling Wallace's hair. "Only girls pull hair," retorted Wallace.

An estimated 70,000 fans turned out for the race - impressively large for a Nationwide event, making the speculation that the event is in danger in 2012 due to the withdrawal of local government financial backing all the sadder.

Full race results and times available.
