Kasey Kahne and Carl Edwards have never been known as good buddies.  Both drivers are in need of a win and both hoped to get just that in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Kahne started third while Edwards started back in 14th.

Edwards in his third race with Joe Gibbs Racing has looked strong since the start of the season. Sunday was no exception as he was soon inside the top 10.  Kahne had fallen back early but was making up ground. Both seemed to have the speed to contend for the win. Both drivers saw that chance end on lap 192 shortly after a restart.

As the two battled side by side for position behind the leaders, Edwards swept up and pinched Kahne’s Chevy into the wall exiting turn 4. Both cars were able to continue and seconds later both were racing into turn 1. Kahne came down on Edwards and sent him sideways. Kahne continued on; Edwards tried to save it, but his Toyota spun into the apron and the inside wall. Later Edwards took the blame for the entire incident. MORE>>>
