One of the best races fans have ever witnessed sent Marcos Ambrose to victory lane for the second year in a row at Watkins Glen.
Going into the final lap Ambrose was third and he crossed the finish line first.
Many factors affected the end of the race, but oil was the biggest one. After Bobby Labonte blew his engine with two to go, he laid oil all over the track and the leaders would need to go through it to make it to the finish. NASCAR officials weren’t aware of the amount of oil on the racing surface so they did not throw a yellow flag.
