Marcos Ambrose survived a collision with Jacques Villeneuve to win the NAPA Auto Parts 200 NASCAR Nationwide race on Saturday.
Ambrose took the lead on a restart with 10 laps to go as he blew past Alex Tagliani and held top spot through the sixth caution of the incident-filled race to claim victory on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where he has twice come close to winning. Tagliani finished second and Michael McDowell was third.
The Australian was coming off his first Sprint Cup victory Monday at Watkins Glen, N.Y. He arrived in Montreal less than 30 minutes before the race from Michigan, where he will compete Sunday in Sprint Cup.
Steve Wallace was fourth and J.R. Fitzpatrick fifth.
