2009 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen

The 2009 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen was a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event held on August 10, 2009 at Watkins Glen International.

The race was rained out on the original scheduled day of August 9. The race was won by points leader Tony Stewart, his 5th at the Glen and 3rd of the year. During the race a hard crash involving Sam Hornish Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Jeff Burton, left the drivers shaken but alright. Kasey Kahne got loose under Hornish and Hornish slid hard into the tire barrier. Then Hornish spun back onto the track and Gordon had no way to avoid him and they made hard contact sending Gordon head on into the Armco barrier and Hornish into Jeff Burton, which nearly sent Hornish on his side.[1]

In the late stages of the race, fuel mileage was an issue but no one had any problems. Stewart held off a strong Marcos Ambrose for the win. Drivers from five different countries were in the race including the United States of America, Australia, Colombia, Italy and Canada. An incredible crowd of 85,000 live spectators were enthralled by this 146-minute racing event where the average green flag run was almost 13 laps long. Due to the massive amounts of accidents and debris, more than 14% of the event was raced under a caution flag.[1]
