A monumental first on Sunday as 7 different countries were represented at Watkins Glen with 2007 F1 Champion Kimi Raikkonen highlighting the international invasion.

Chase Elliott brought the field to the green flag but due previous heavy rains, the start was single file.

Michael McDowell took advantage of a wet track and made a pass for the lead around Elliott on lap 4.

Chase Briscoe worked his way around McDowell for the lead as green flag pit stops occurred near the end of the stage and held on for the Stage 1 win.

Todd Gilliland led the start of Stage 2 alongside Joey Logano.

Logano held off Kyle Busch to win stage 2.

Not the day that he had hoped for, Kimi Raikkonen was involved in a chain reaction incident after Ross Chastain spun Austin Dillon through the "bus stop" and Loris Hezemens sent Raikkonen into the tire barrier.

With 4 laps to go, on the final restart, Kyle Larson dove down hard into turn one pushing teammate Chase Elliott up the hill as Larson took the lead.

Larson held off AJ Allmendinger to win the Go Bowling at the Glen.
