The continuing saga between Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne added another chapter Saturday night at Darlington Raceway. During the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Southern 500, Busch and Kahne came together again. The dust-up happened almost a week after Busch got into Kahne at Talladega sending both cars crashing and setting off a multi-car melee.
Saturday night with 30 laps to go on a restart, Busch who had been dominating the event started on the outside row with Kahne on the inside. The two battled door-to-door for a couple of laps and Kahne seemed to be gaining the advantage. As the two entered turn 1 with Kahne high and Busch low, Kahne was powering ahead. Busch came up off the apron in the middle of the turns directly behind and underneath Kahne. While it’s not clear if Busch hit Kahne, Kahne’s Chevy slid up into the wall. Kahne was able to keep going but his chances for the win were gone.
Kahne put the blame for the incident directly on Busch; just as he had done the week prior at Talladega. MORE>>>
