The Nationwide Series race at Montreal has quickly become such a highlight since the track's NASCAR debut in 2007. So much so, in fact, that there's significant clamoring for the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to host a Sprint Cup Series race, especially as the friendly sentiment for road course racing has grown in the wake of Sunday's crazy last lap at Watkins Glen.
The track, which has hosted Formula 1 races since 1978 is scenically located in the midst of the St. Lawrence River and thanks to the tight corners and long straightaways, has translated incredibly well to stock cars. Really incredibly well.
So, in honor of Saturday's race, here are some of the best Montreal finishes, including Boris Said beating Max Papis to the line in 2010, Carl Edwards capitalizing on Marcos Ambrose's mistake in 2009, and, of course, Robby Gordon's meltdown in 2007. Enjoy!
