NASCAR At Watkins Glen: Heluva Good! At The Glen Underway

A little under 24 hours later than planned, the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips is underway. A.J. Allmendinger make a bold move to grab the lead on the opening circuit of the race from pole-sitter Kyle Busch. Allmendinger, seeking his first-career Sprint Cup win, led after just five of 90 laps in today's race. His Richard Petty Motorsports teammate Marcos AMbrose, likewise seeking his first win, runs second, followed by Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and last year's winner Juan Pablo Montoya.

Boris Said, one of the road-racing specialists, spun getting into the backstretch interloop on the second lap of the race, but he resumed. Kurt Busch then spun on the fifth lap in the same part of the track but likewise resumed.

Rain postponed the race, originally scheduled to start at 1:19 p.m. on Sunday. There was still mist in the rain air Monday, but the race went green as scheduled just after 10 a.m.
