Marcos Ambrose was the driver to watch in today's Nationwide Series race at Montreal. Ambrose led the most laps, but did not win the race. Carl Edwards passed Ambrose on the final turn of the final lap to win his first race outside of the United States.

Marcos Ambrose was in the lead with ten laps to go when NASCAR decided to pull out the rain tires due to rain. As a result, there were many wrecks toward the end of the race. If NASCAR had not decided to pull out the rain tires, Marcos Ambrose could have won. On the other hand, today's race was a great show for the fans.

The top ten is as follows:

1. Carl Edwards

2. Marcos Ambrose

3. Andrew Ranger

4. Jaques Villaneuve

5. Brad Keselowski

6. Tony Raines

7. Jean-Francois Dumoulin

8. Stephen Leicht

9. Brendan Gaughn*

10. Kyle Busch
