WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Marcos Ambrose has won the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International for his first victory in NASCAR's top series.
Ambrose beat Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch on a green-white-checkered finish to atone for a slip-up a year ago on the road course at Sonoma, when he stalled his car under caution while leading with six laps to go and finished sixth.
Busch led the field to the green flag. But Keselowski, racing with a broken left ankle and trying for his second straight win and third of the season, dove from third to the lead entering the first turn with Ambrose also streaking past Busch.
Ambrose bumped Keselowski in the chicane and then passed him for the lead. The race ended with a caution as David Reutimann and David Ragan crashed violently entering the second turn.
Busch finished third, and Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano rounded out the top five.
