Cup - Watkins Glen - Race results

Marcos Ambrose triumphed at Watkins Glen International, pushing aside Brad Keselowski for his maiden Cup victory after long-time leader Kyle Busch made a mistake at the final restart.
Australian Marcos Ambrose finally achieved his long-sought breaktrough first Sprint Cup win, after he took the lead of the 'Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen' in a dramatic green-white-chequered restart on the Watkins Glen International road course.

Polesitter Kyle Busch led the most laps during the race and at the final restart, but overshot turn 1 leaving Brad Keselowski in the lead before Marcos Ambrose muscled past him before the white flag.

The final lap ended prematurely after a massive accident involving David Ragan and David Reutimann sparked by contact between Ragan and Boris Said, who got involved in a pit road altercation with Ragan's team mate Greg Biffle after the race ended.
