(Watkins Glen, NY) - A.J. Allmendinger won a shootout with road course ace Marcos Ambrose, taking the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win.

Allmendinger, a former open-wheel racing star won in his 213th Cup start and likely clinched a berth in the Chase For The Championship.

The race went on without three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart, who pulled out of the race just hours after he struck and killed 20-year-old sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. in a race, after Ward climbed from his car.

Allmendinger offered condolences to the Ward family after the victory.

"It's a tough time for everybody," Allmendinger said. "This NASCAR community, as a whole, we're a family. When anything like that happens, it's something that you don't get time to erase and forget about. Our thoughts and prayers go to the Ward family and what happened. And it also goes to Tony. It's not like he's sitting there and forgetting about it."
