Kyle Busch edged Brad Keselowski in a thrilling finish and won the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y. on Sunday. Leading before a restart with two laps to go, Busch held off Keselowski, who finished second in the race for the third year in a row.

Martin Truex Jr. finished third with Carl Edwards and Juan Pablo Montoya rounding out the top five. Cup series points leader Jimmie Johnson finished eighth in the race.

Johnson remained in first in the overall standings, but sixth-place race finisher Clint Bowyer and Edwards gained two and four points respectively on his lead.

Johnson now leads Bowyer by 75 points and Edwards by 80 on the season.

What Else Happened:

Ambrose Couldn’t Make It Three-In-A-Row:
Pole-sitter Marcos Ambrose had won the past two races at the New York road track, and he led before he pitted under caution midway through the race. Ambrose never regained the lead.

Gordon Got Wrecked:
Four-time Watkins Glen winner Jeff Gordon crashed on lap 15 of the 90-lap race, slipping off the road course while attempting to pass Denny Hamlin.
