DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Kasey Kahne nipped Regan Smith at the Daytona International Speedway finish line Friday night for his first Nationwide Series victory since 2007.
Kahne weaved his way through traffic during a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, but didn't appear to be in the mix for a shot at the win as Smith pulled away from the pack.
But as the field hurtled through the final turn, Kyle Larson jumped out of line and made it three-wide behind Smith. Kahne moved into the top lane and, using a push from Ryan Sieg, charged alongside Smith and beat him to the line.
Smith, who won the season-opener at the track in February, wound up second. Sieg was a career-best third.
It was Kahne's first Nationwide victory since 2007 at Bristol.
