When the dust settled during the green-white-checkered finish, it was Marcos Ambrose who scored his first Sprint Cup Series win on the Watkins Glen road course.
Ambrose made his move through “the bus stop” passing Brad Keselowski in the blue deuce. Ambrose was in the lead and Keselowski was second when the final caution came out which froze the field.
The accident that brought out the caution was when Boris Said hit the rear quarter panel of David Ragan’s machine sending it into David Reutimann’s car which ping-ponged across the track, flipped over and exploded into a thousand pieces.
Greg Biffle had enough of Boris Said, and expressed his opinion on the track towards Boris, which in turn infuriated Said. After the race Boris stormed over to Greg Biffle looking to settle the score. He was restrained by Biffle’s crew.
When interviewed after the race Greg Biffle said, that this isn’t the first time that Boris hasn’t given any room to the full-time Sprint Cup Series drivers on the track, and he has caused wrecks on the carousel before. He also stated that instead of showing up at his hauler that Boris should have went to see if David Reutimann was okay first.
This made the already angry road course driver even more mad, and Boris stated that if he sees Biffle that he was going to even the score.
Oh yah…. last week Brad Keselowski won with a broken ankle, and this week he came in second driving a road course of all places with a broken ankle and severe pain in his back from the crash he was involved in during testing a week before.
Who says that watching cars go around in circles is boring!
