On lap 62 of Sunday’s GoBowling at The Glen, Bubba Wallace and Kyle Busch exited turn seven side-by-side, fighting for position.
Wallace steered to the right, banging doors with Busch’s No. 18 Toyota and forcing the car toward the wall that separates pit road from the racing surface. Busch turned his car back to the left and collided with Wallace’s No. 43 Ford.
The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series had an exciting Sunday afternoon at Watkins Glen International. Chase Elliott won his first-ever Cup race last year when he outlasted Martin Truex Jr in the closing laps of the race. This Sunday was another example of how challenging and exciting road course racing is at Watkins Glen.
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – It was a striking case of déjà vu.
In a replay of Last year’s GoBowling at the Glen, Martin Truex Jr. chased pole winner Chase Elliott lap after lap around the 2.45-mile road course, using everything in his arsenal to try to deprive Elliott of his second straight victory at the track.
