The annual I-Love-New York 355 At The Glen invaded Watkins Glen International Speedway on Sunday afternoon.

In front of a sold out crowd, the action did not disappoint.

Kyle Busch came away victorious during Saturday's Xfinity Series race, earning poll position to begin Sunday's race.

However, Martin Truex Jr. proved to overcome that and squeak out the win.

In the final lap, Truex Jr. and Matt Kenseth battled it out to the finish line, but that's when Truex Jr. was able to hold on despite appearing to run out of fuel.

Fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. bowed out due to car troubles after 22 laps. Earnhardt Jr. finished in last place in the 37-car field.

With the win, Truex Jr. pushes his victory total to four, leading the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
