Wild and wacky may be the best way to describe the finish of the Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen. It featured hard racing with the leaders and an ending that was exciting and controversial.

Points got rattled within the top 10 in the standings and the prime candidates for the coveted wild-card slot were switched up.

The defending winner of this race, Marcos Ambrose, took the checkered flag in a fierce battle with Brad Keselowski. It was his second career Cup win.

Along the way on the curvy course, mechanical failures took their toll and the inevitable spins were costly to several drivers.

In the end, the driver who looked to be headed for the win with three laps to go, Kyle Busch, was punted off the track.

This slideshow will highlight some of the most game-changing moments at Watkins Glen.
