Kahne, who started 27th had made an appearance inside the top five and was making his way back through the field after a pit stop. On lap 142 while just outside the top 10 Kahne was exiting  turn 1 when he was suddenly seen careening into the wall. After the initial hit, which swept up driver Carl Edwards, Kahne again hit the wall eventually sliding to a stop.

“I saw Kasey hit the wall really hard,” Edwards said. MORE>>>
