Yes, there is nothing like Monday morning NASCAR racing. After a rainout on Sunday, the big boys of Sprint Cup racing took to Watkins Glen on an overcast, but dry morning.
And yes, as is wont to happen at a road course, there was plenty of car carnage.
Denny Hamlin plowed smack into the wall on lap 65 in what looked like a violent collision after his brakes locked up, he got up and walked away.
Also walking away were David Reutimann and David Ragan. Reutimann's car hit the wall and flipped multiple times before coming to a stop. He...and Ragan walked away.
The story of the day though was Ambrose, who is now the 5th first time winner on the circuit. We might add that he won 3 Nationwide races as well, all at the Glen.
Needless to say, you can consider him a pretty good road course driver.

But it gets better... Boris Said wants a piece of Greg Biffle...
And the language is awesome...
When was the last time a driver told another that he'd show up with a black eye on a Wednesday in the future...??? The HQ doesn't care and wants to see it in person...
