CONCORD NC – After an early season struggling with a new team, Kasey Kahne scored his first victory for Hendrick Motorsports Sunday with a dominating performance in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After starting seventh, Kahne was running inside the top five at the start of NASCAR’s longest race. On lap 280 he finally wrested the lead from Greg Biffle, who looked strong at the outset. From there Kahne was able to take control with his only real challenges coming from Biffle, and later Denny Hamlin as the laps wound down.

The victory came on Kahne’s 300th career start and marked the first win for Kahne since he began racing for Hendrick Motorsports at the start of this season. MORE>>>
