#42-Juan Pablo Montoya put on a dominating performance at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez to capture his first NASCAR win in his 7th Busch Series start. He led 43 laps during the day. Montoya had to overcome a broken overflow hose to the fuel cell that caused him to have to make an unscheduled pit stop with less than 30 laps to go which put him back in 19th place at that point. #20-Denny Hamlin, who was last year's Mexico race winner, finished second. #9-Boris Said was third and #60-Carl Edwards fourth. #41-Scott Pruett, who led 20 laps before being spun out in contact with Montoya on lap 72, battled back to finish 5th. The race was slowed by 8 cautions, including 6 in the last 20 laps.
