WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Kurt Busch has won the Nationwide Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International.
Subbing for injured Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski, Busch beat Jimmie Johnson by nearly a second on a green-white-checkered finish Saturday. That deprived brother Kyle Busch of his 50th career victory in the series.
Joey Logano was third, followed by Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards.
The race was mostly a battle between the Busch brothers until the second caution of the race flew with two laps remaining in regulation. They took turns leading the entire 85 laps of the race.
Forced to pit with five laps to go because he was on a different fuel strategy, Kyle Busch had relinquished the lead to his brother, and Kurt, who started from pole, was able to hold on.
