CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Kasey Kahne capitalized on yet another
heartbreaking Tony Stewart defeat, grabbing the lead from the
two-time champion when his tire went flat with three laps to go in
the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night.
Kahne led 65 laps at Lowe's Motor Speedway, but forfeited it to
Stewart with 16 laps to go when he had to stop for gas. Stewart
stopped for gas later, but had a shorter fill-up that cycled him
back into the lead.
Stewart was cruising toward his first win in NASCAR's longest
race of the year when he smacked the wall, causing his tire to go
flat and forcing him to head to the pits. Kahne zipped by for the win.
