Montoya wins at Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) -- Juan Pablo Montoya has won the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International.

Montoya pulled away on a late restart from Marcos Ambrose, his biggest challenger all day, and beat Kurt Busch by 4.7 seconds in the 90-lap race around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile layout.

It was Montoya's second career victory, the other coming on NASCAR's other road course at Sonoma in 2007.

Ambrose was third, his third straight top-three finish at Watkins Glen, followed by AJ Allmendinger and polesitter Carl Edwards.

Jamie McMurray, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon rounded out the top 10.
