Kyle Busch's Crew Claims Tissot Pit Road Award at The Glen

Second Tissot Win of Season for Joe Gibbs Racing Crew

Kyle Busch's pit crew won the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup road race at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International.

It was the second Tissot win of the season for the No. 18 crew, which moved into a tie for third place in the season standings.

Jeff Gordon's No. 24crew continues to lead the Tissot competition with four wins while Jamie McMurray's No. 1 crew is second at three wins.

The weekly-winning crew receives $5,000 from Tissot plus a Tissot V8 Quartz Chronograph watch. The team with the most Tissot Pit Road Precision Award wins at the completion of the 36-race schedule will receive a $105,000 bonus plus Tissot watches for the over-the-wall crew members and driver.

Busch's No. 18 M&M's Toyota Camry spent the least amount of time on pit road during the 90-lap race in central New York -- 84.438 seconds. Coming in second was Carl Edwards' No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion (84.821) and third was Kurt Busch's No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger (85.358).

The quick work by the No. 18 crew helped Busch post an eighth-place finish.

The No. 18 over-the-wall crew consists of: Nick Odell (front-tire changer), Brad Donaghy (front-tire carrier), Jake Seminara (rear-tire changer), Kenny Barber (rear-tire carrier), Jeff Fender (jackman), Tom Lampe (gasman), Jason Hinson (catch can). The team's pit crew coach is Mike Lepp and the crew chief is Dave Rogers.

Tissot has been the official watch and timekeeper of NASCAR since 2006. The company is also the official timekeeper for a number of other sports, including the MotoGP World Championship, the Ice Hockey World Championship and the Cycling World Championship.
