Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne saw his Chase hopes take a big hit Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Or did he?

Kahne started second and early on looked to be a contender for the win. He led a total of 31 laps but was caught down late in the going.  Kahne was working his way towards the front when on lap 253 less than 50 from the end disaster struck. The back of Kahne’s Chevy seemed to break loose as he raced out of turn 4.  Moments later the car slid across the track and pancaked on the driver’s side on the inside front stretch wall. Kahne was taken to the infield car center while his Chevy was towed to the garage.

After he was released from the care center, Kahne gave the requisite interview where he seemed a bit confused. MORE>>>
