After an exciting road course race at Watkins Glen, Kyle Busch finally gets the win after being one of the better drivers to race at the Glen.

Marcos Ambrose was the heavy favorite after winning here two years in a row, and landing on the pole for this years race.

Ambrose did lead a majority of the Laps at Watkins Glen, but after a caution came out before he could pit, Marcos would end up restarting back in 12th, and would never manage to make it to the front again.

As the race started to come to an end, cautions would breed cautions, as drivers like Kasey Kahne and Dale Jr. were caught up in wrecks.

Macros Ambrose would also be involved in a wreck, and was sidelined before the race even ended.

Keselowski and Kyle would battle during the last two Laps, but Kyle would maintain the lead through the end of the race, and would win his third race of the season.

The race to the Chase saw changes as Jeff Gordon wrecked early and dropped out of the top 10, while Keselowski and his second place finish (for a third year in a row) managed to move up to eighth in the standings.

Watkins Glen turned out to be another exciting road course race, and will hopefully get NASCAR thinking about adding a road course race during the Chase.
