Kasey Kahne Bags First Win and A Spot In The Chase

by - Tuesday, September 02, 2014

When I read the Chase standings of the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Kasey Kahne is one of the drivers outside the grid - looking in and needing a win to secure a spot. The driver of the #5 car and Hendick Motorsports hasn't had the kind of luck he enjoyed last year - locking in early. But, as fate would have it, Kahne is destined to race in the Chase once again after securing a win the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta last Sunday.



Kasey started in P10 and restarted at second after the yellow flag that was brought by Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano having contact. Before he could take the lead though, he had to race hard against Matt Kenseth who restarted in P1. 



Kenseth finished 2nd; Denny Hamlin in 3rd, Jimmie Johnson in 4th and Carl Edwards in 5th, completed the Top 5 finishers after the checkered flag. Meanwhile, Danica Patrick recorded a career-best finish in 6th place.
