Chase Elliott has won the second stage of the Cup race at Watkins Glen.
Martin Truex Jr., who started fourth in the 90-lap race around the 2.45-mile natural terrain course, is chasing his third straight road course victory.
Elliott won the race's second stage and brought the sellout crowd to its feet with a pass of Busch. Pole-sitter Denny Hamlin finished 13th. Kyle Busch finished third, 20 seconds behind, followed by Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones, a triumvirate of Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas.
Truex is seeking his third consecutive victory on a road course in NASCAR's stop Sunday in the GoBowling at The Glen.
Busch took charge on the restart, pulling away to a lead of almost three seconds over Truex, with Hamlin third and Chase Elliott fourth.
Midway through the segment, the Big 3 of Busch, Truex and Kevin Harvick were running in the top 10, but Elliott dominated and beat Busch by 1.3 seconds. He lasted less than three laps on Sunday after sliding off course and then heading to the garage with a broken radiator, his day done. Busch pitted the next time around to stay on the same strategy, but Truex stayed out to win his seventh stage of the season. "I'd come with my dad and now I'm bringing my kids", said Dane Schuster, alongside his sons, Jake and Tyler.
Like Sonoma, Watkins Glen can be unpredictable.
