Montreal -- Boris Said collected his first career NASCAR victory Sunday, edging Max Papis by inches at the Nationwide Series event in Montreal.
Said took the lead for the first time just after the restart for a green-white checkered finish and held on to just eke past Papis and claim the NAPA Auto Parts 200 race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
It was Said's first victory in his 22nd Nationwide Series starts.
Canadian Jacques Villeneuve came in third in front of the hometown fans.
Brad Keselowski finished fourth and Paul Menard was next in fifth place.
Pole sitter Marcos Ambrose finished 33rd after his engine failed him late in the race.
