CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Kasey Kahne powered to victory in the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night, winning 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 5 seconds ahead of Denny Hamlin. Kyle Busch was third and series points leader Greg Biffle fourth.
It was Kahne's 13th career win and his first since last November in Phoenix.
Hendrick drivers were all near the top. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sixth, and Jeff Gordon seventh - just his third top 10 finish of the season.
Danica Patrick was 30th, her best Sprint Cup finish.
