WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- With The King atop the pit box at Watkins Glen International, Marcos Ambrose wasnt about to disappoint. The aggressive Australian dueled early with Kyle Busch to fall off the pace in the NASCAR Nationwide race, then was flawless the rest of the way Saturday, holding off a hard-charging Busch at the end to win the race for the fourth time in his last four starts. "Its just something special. Im just so thrilled for the guys," Ambrose said. "I had my tongue hanging out the whole day. There was nothing left. I tried to hold him back. Another lap and I would have been in trouble." Ambrose raced to three straight victories at the track from 2008-2010, then missed the 2011-2013 events after failing to find a sponsor. Ambroses future in NASCAR with Richard Petty Motorsports remains in doubt, and he desperately needs a victory in Sundays Sprint Cup race to have any chance of making the Chase for the championship. "Theres a lot at stake, a lot of stuff going on in my mind," Ambrose said. "If I can repeat my performance today, Ill be happy." At least Ambrose will start from the front row alongside Jeff Gordon, so the catbird seat will be up for grabs as soon as the green flag waves. "Maybe this will give him a little more incentive," Petty said. "Hes just unreal. Hes doing his job, for dang sure." Joey Logano finished third, followed by Penske teammate and polesitter Brad Keselowski. Matt Kenseth was fifth as Sprint Cup drivers dominated on the speedy 2.45-mile road course. Points leader Chase Elliott finished sixth, Ty Dillon was eighth, and Regan Smith had a difficult race and came home 17th. That boosted Elliotts lead in the standings to 12 points over Smith and 13 over Dillon and Elliott Sadler, who was seventh. Ambrose led 48 laps of the 82-lap race for his fifth Nationwide victory, all on road courses and a series record. The race became intense early when Busch and Ambrose, who started together on the second row, tangled in the chicane, or inner loop, on the sixth lap. Busch drove inside of Ambrose entering the quick four-turn section, a move reminiscent of one Ambrose made when he stunned Busch in the same place in the 2009 event and went on to win the race. "I looked up halfway down the back straight, he was close and he ducked out late," Ambrose said. "I turned in late because I was very committed. He bumped my left rear. It wasnt intentional. He was trying to get out of the way. No harm, no foul. Just hard racing." Both spun out into a big runoff area after the contact, dropping several spots in the running order as the Penske duo of Logano and Keselowski took control. "I knew it wasnt over, thats for sure," said Ambrose, his young daughters smiling as they watched in the media centre. "The moment I spun out, I tried 110 per cent the rest of the way. It just goes to show you these races are never over. You cant quit." A decisive moment came just past the midpoint of the race. Logano pitted after Ambrose and zoomed onto the track as Ambrose came streaking by. Both ran side-by-side through the first two turns and into the uphill section until Ambrose edged ahead. "Super important," Ambrose said. "If I hadnt cleared him right there, he would have been gone. It would have been hard to pass him." "That was definitely a key moment," Logano added. "If I could have gotten out front of him there, I felt like if I got clean air and ran hard, I could gap him. It would have been close. Im not going to say I would have won the race, but if I didnt run so hard and burn off the tires, would it have been enough to beat him? I dont know." When the race restarted with 20 laps to go after the fifth caution, the four cars that began the race in the first two rows were still there, just in a different order. Ambrose cleared Logano when the green flag flew, with Busch and Keselowski right behind. Busch challenged Keselowski for third entering the chicane, and Keselowskis defensive move sent him spinning off course, grass and dirt flying as he dropped to sixth. Logano stalked Ambrose as the two front-runners pulled away from Busch by over 2 seconds as Keselowski tried to rebound from his mistake. Busch began to close, passing Logano with less than five laps to go but never got to Ambroses back bumper. "I just got caught in a bad spot early and battled back," Busch said. "I tried to chase down Marcos. A few more laps maybe, but." Sheldon Richardson Vikings Jersey . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. Kirk Cousins Vikings Jersey . The unrestricted free agent agreed to terms with the club on Thursday on a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000. http://www.officialauthenticvikingsshop ... ersey.html. Yup, he definitely needed this one. Craig homered twice and had three RBIs Wednesday night to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Craig went 4 for 5 and Yadier Molina added three hits for the Cardinals, who salvaged the final game of a three-game set in hopes of staying within shouting distance of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. Mike Hughes Vikings Jersey . They were expecting him there all along. The Pacers announced Friday night that George has been cleared "to return to normal basketball activity," a decision made three days after he was concussed in Game 2 of the Indiana-Miami series. Trevor Siemian Jersey . But defending champion Elena Vesnina of Russia held off a strong challenge to beat Shuai Peng of China 6-3, 6-4, and there was another hard-fought victory for 2012 runner-up Angelique Kerber of Germany, who defeated Alison Riske of the United States 7-6 (6), 6-4.Andy Murray has earned his place at the top of the world rankings after hard work and big decisions, says Annabel Croft. Murray became the worlds No 1 without having to play a shot following the withdrawal of Milos Raonic in the Paris Masters semi-final on Saturday afternoon.The 29-year-old is the first British singles player to hold top spot since computerised rankings began in 1973 and will play John Isner in Sundays final, live on Sky Sports 3, after the American beat Marin Cilic. It was a feat roundly praised by the Sky Sports commentary team. Peter Fleming called it an amazing turnaround from the Briton, while Croft said: Its a culmination of a fantastic season with sheer hard work and the commitment to bring out a high level of tennis every week.He made that change in his head last summer. He had back surgery [three years ago] which was a massive decision and people were asking have we seen the best of Andy? Andy Murray trained in front of the Paris crowd after they missed out on watching his semi-final He slipped down the rankings and my goodness has he come back with a vengeance. He may well go on to dominate through 2017.Its not probably the way he wanted to do it but it shows its a lot more about the year. Andy said the other day getting to be world No 1 was not about just one match.Its the level of consistency hes put out there for the year. Many congratulations to him. Its a shame we wont see that match but what a fabulous achievement and what a fabulous day for him.Novak Djokovic, who lost to Cilic in the French capital in Fridays quarter-final, had been No 1 for 122 weeks and completed his career Grand Slam when he conquered Murray in the French Open final in June. Live ATP Masters Tennis November 6, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Murray has had a stunning run, making 11 finals in his last 12 tournaments, winning 73 matches in the year.ddddddddddddHe also becomes the first player other than Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to lead the rankings since Andy Roddick in 2004.Fleming added: Since the summer hes been virtually unbeatable and he fully deserves this ranking. Its no good though if he just stops.There have been 20 players who have been no 1 and several have only been there for a couple of weeks. The challenge is to be the year-end No 1. To do that he probably needs to win in London at the World Finals. Novak Djokovic says Andy Murray deserves to become the world No 1 But he needs a different mindset now. Hes probably still in hunter-mode through to the O2 finals because he still needs to win that or do better than Novak to become No 1 at the end of the year which is a bigger deal.Its knowing you have to maintain that incredible level every week - but hes been doing that over the last seven months.Watch the Paris Masters final Murray v Isner, live on Sky Sports 3 on Sunday from 2pm Also See: Murrays magnificent year Tennis on Sky Murray becomes world No 1 Murrays finest achievement Cheap Hawks Jerseys Cheap Celtics Jerseys Cheap Nets Jerseys Cheap Hornets Jerseys Cheap Bulls Jerseys Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys Cheap Mavericks Jerseys Cheap Nuggets Jerseys Cheap Pistons Jerseys Cheap Warriors Jerseys Cheap Rockets Jerseys Cheap Pacers Jerseys Cheap Clippers Jerseys Cheap Lakers Jerseys Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys ' ' '
