It was a crazy finish at Watkins Glen in New York this morning (due to yesterday’s rain out), but somehow Australian driver Marcos Ambrose outlasted Brad Keslowski and Kyle Busch to earn his first career Sprint Cup victory and put RPM in Victory Lane for the first time this season.

Ambrose won on a caution lap following multiple wrecks that saw David Ragan slam into a wall, David Reutimann flip his car and Tony Stewart spin out and cause even more scrap metal carnage. There were also post-race fireworks between Boris Said and Greg Biffle.
