It only took Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne four races into the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season to score his first win, the best start to a season for Kahne since he equaled the feat in 2006. That year, when he was with the former Evernham Motorsports, Kahne went on to score a career best six wins. This past Sunday Kahne scored his first career victory at Bristol Motor Speedway; Tuesday Kahne took time to answer questions from the media about his win, the upcoming race at Auto Club Speedway and even Dancing with the Stars. Below is the transcript of that interview.
