    Background: Peter Revson of the United States won the 200-mile (320 kilometres) Can-Am Challenge Cup race at Watkins Glen on Sunday (25 July). Driving a Team McLaren car, Revson led in all but 27 of the 82 laps.

    Finishing just ahead of his McLaren team mate, Denny Hulme of New Zealand, Revson completed the course in one hour 32 minutes 54 seconds, at an average speed of 128.58 MPH (206.92 KPH).

    Jo Siffert of Switzerland, in a Porsche 917 Spyder, finished third, with American star Mario Andretti fourth in a Ferrari.

    Britain's Jackie Stewart, who started in pole position, was forced out by mechanical troubles before the 57th lap.

    Revson's win put him into the overall lead in the Can-Am Challenge Cup series with 67 points -- two more than Hulme. Revson has now won two events and Hulme one, in the four races this year.
