Kahne gulps up Coca-Cola 600

CONCORD, N.C. — Kasey Kahne powered to victory in the Coca-Cola 600 last night, taking NASCAR’s longest race for the third time for his first win with Hendrick Motorsports.

Kahne also gave car owner Rick Hendrick his 201st Sprint Cup series win.

Kahne crossed the finish line nearly five seconds ahead of Denny Hamlin. Kyle Busch was third and series points leader Greg Biffle fourth.

Kahne became the 16th Hendrick driver to take the checkered flag.

It was Kahne’s 13th career win and first since last November in Phoenix.

Hendrick drivers were all near the top. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sixth, and Gordon seventh — just his third top 10 finish of the season.

Five-time series champion Jimmie Johnson was 11th.

Danica Patrick, the first woman to drive in the race since Janet Guthrie in 1976, was five laps down in 30th. Still, it was her best finish in three career Sprint Cup races.
