Bryan Sellers and Mark Bowden captured the checkered flag in Saturday's Continental Tire 150 at Watkins Glen International.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – Fall-Line Motorsports scored their first Watkins Glen International victory in a wet and wild Continental Tire 150 Saturday. Bryan Sellers took the checkered flag with a last-lap pass of Matt Plumb entering Turn 1, holding on for the win. Plumb, co-driver of the No. 13 Rum Bum Racing Porsche 997, in search of his third victory of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series made a comeback from a first-lap incident.
The multi-car incident on Lap 43, at 5:03 p.m., resulted in a full-course caution that lasted 33 minutes. Green flag racing returned with just two minutes and 10 seconds remaining, just enough time for the final lap.
