Nationwide - Watkins Glen - Race results

Kurt Busch won the Zippo 200 at the Glen Nationwide Series race after overcoming strong challenges from his younger brother Kyle Busch and his fiercest critic Jimmie Johnson.
Kurt Busch picked up his first Nationwide win in five years on a rare appearance in the series at Watkins Glen International, subbing for injured team mate Brad Keselowski in the #22 Dodge.

In a race that saw a Busch lead every single one of the 85 laps - Kurt led for 37 but his younger brother Kyle led even more, with the remaining 48 laps to his credit - it was Jimmie Johnson who was the strongest challenge in the concluding laps and came close to stealing the win despite a pit lane penalty.

Kyle's attempt to make his fuel last to the end to recover from early setbacks was unsuccessful but he still managed to finish in fourth place behind his Cup team mate Joey Logano.
