Adam Matz led 35 of 41 laps in route to victory at Watkins Glen International. The win was Matz’ fifth career win, and first of the season, locking him into the playoffs.
Matz wasn’t seriously challenged all night, and finished a comfortable 2.4 seconds ahead of runner-up Johnny Avila, who gained a race-high nine positions to finish second. Bentley Glaser, Derek Pemberton and Duane Hunt rounded out the top five.
Steve Yenisch picked up a valuable playoff point by staying out for the stage win, but faded to a nine place finish after a wreck on the restart put him back in the running order.
