Watkins Glen: Nationwide results

Penske Racing dominated the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen on Saturday afternoon, with Brad Keselowski heading Sam Hornish Jr. at the line after Joey Logano ran dry two laps from the finish.
Brad Keselowski celebrated his 24th NASCAR Nationwide Series win in 199 starts and his fourth in his most recent four starts in 2013 with victory in the ZIPPO 200 on Saturday - only Ryan Newman (2005), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (2002-2004) and Mark Martin (1993) have made it five from five in the series' history.

After having led the sole practice session on a rain-hit Friday, Sam Hornish Jr. had earlier won his third pole in 87 Nationwide races (his second this year) to start the ZIPPO 200 alongside Kyle Busch, but Busch spun into the tyre wall coming out of the first corner and was smashed in the front right by the unsighted Mike Wallace. That allowed Hornish to lead from his Penske team mates Keselowski and Joey Logano, with Parker Kligerman taking over for seven laps by staying out when the leaders pitted under caution on lap 19.

Once Kilgerman did stop, the lead went to Keselowski who remained in front through a caution caused by a transmission failure on Kyle Larson's #32 until lap 53, when Keselowski and Hornish both came in for their final stop of the afternoon. That put Logano in the lead after Penske had earlier split their cars' strategies, albeit with Logano now several laps shy of making it full distance. Keselowski and Hornish took advantage of Logano going into fuel saving mode by passing for the lead on lap 64, but without a further caution the #48 did indeed run dry two laps from the finish and dropped to 21st place.

While Keselowski celebrated in victory lane, Hornish's second place helped tighten up the Nationwide standings to put him just three points off Nationwide championship leader Austin Dillon, who finished this week's race in 12th. However, with Brian Vickers, Regan Smith, Elliott Sadler, Parker Kilgerman and Justin Allgaier all finishing in the top seven, the points remain very tight coming out of Watkins Glen and just 18 points cover the top five heading for the next road course outing at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course next weekend.
