BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Matt Kenseth held off Kasey Kahne for 12 nerve-racking laps to hang on and win Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.
The win is the fifth of the season for Kenseth, most in the Sprint Cup Series, and clinches a spot in the Chase for the championship.
Kahne passed Juan Pablo Montoya for second and set his sights on Kenseth. Kahne tried numerous times over the final dozen laps to make the pass but never could make it stick. He went for the bump and run on the last lap and missed, and has to settle for second.
Montoya was third, followed by Brian Vickers, Joey Logano, Paul Menard, Jeff Gordon, Marcos Ambrose, Greg Biffle and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
