Kyle Busch made a timely pit stop and was able to survive three restarts in the final laps to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen Sunday.  After losing the race the prior two years while leading, Busch was finally able to celebrate his second career win on the 2.45 mile road course.

For most of the first part of the race it looked to be a cake walk for pole sitter Marcos Ambrose who led from the pole and had won at the Glen the prior two years.  He would lead 51 of the first 60 laps.

The field was parked for a red flag for nearly 23 minutes after a crash on lap 40 that started when Travis Kvapil, Ron Fellows, Tomy Drissi, Landon Cassill and Victor Gonzalez Jr. all came together up the hill in Turn 4. Ambrose led again as the field took the green. MORE>>>
