Boris Said takes checkered in Nationwide race in Montreal

MONTREAL (AP) -- Boris Said has won the Nationwide race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, edging Max Papis by a nose on a green-white-checkered finish.

Papis passed Said entering the final chicane for a split second, but Said never lost momentum and sped back by and outraced Papis to the line.

Jacques Villeneuve was third, followed by series points leader Brad Keselowski and Paul Menard.

Robby Gordon had the lead when the race restarted for the final time, but ran out of fuel. Marcos Ambrose and Carl Edwards combined to lead much of the race, but both dropped out with mechanical problems.
