(Watkins Glen, NY) -- AJ Allmendinger outlasted the field despite a near hour-and-a-half red flag delay in Sunday's Cheez-It 355 from Watkins Glen. It's his first-ever Sprint Cup Series victory. The 32-year-old led 30 of the 90 laps. Marcos Ambrose finished second while Kurt Busch, Kyle Larson and Carl Edwards rounded out the top five.
There was a one-hour and 21-minute delay due to a wreck on Lap 57 involving Ryan Newman and Michael McDowell. Tony Stewart's replacement, Regan Smith, ended 37th. Stewart pulled out of the race after a fatal accident Saturday that killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Junior.
