It looked like Kyle Busch had it all the way. But the No. 18 M&M’s car spun out on the final lap in an incredibly exciting, but controversial finish to the Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen International, eventually won by Marcos Ambrose – his second straight checkered flag at The Glen.

Busch, and several other drivers, said after the race that there was oil on the track, near what is called the inner-loop. Whether it was oil, or a nudge from Brad Keselowski, Busch slid out of first setting up a back and forth racing brawl between Keselowski and Ambrose, ultimately taken by the Aussie.

Read what other drivers had to say about the track conditions coming down the stretch.

Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer, San Hornish Jr., Greg Biffle, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Regan Smith and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top ten – Complete Results.

Johnson’s third place run pushes him atop the Sprint Cup Series Standings, a single point ahead of Biffle – Full Standings.

In five career races at Watkins Glen, Ambrose has won it twice (the last two years), finished second once, and taken third twice.
