The victory is the second of Montoya's career (131 races); his first was also at a road course at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. That was on June 24, 2007, 113 races ago. He won by 4.735 seconds over Kurt Busch (best career finish on a road course).

The rest of the top five were Marcos Ambrose (third top 10 in three races here), A.J. Allmendinger, Carl Edwards. Rounding out the top 10 were Jamie McMurray, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon.

There were five cautions for 13 laps -- exactly the same amounts from last year's race. NASCAR estimated the attendance at 90,000.
