AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Kasey Kahne snapped an 81-race losing streak by winning Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway.
Championship contenders Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart finished second and third, and Edwards will take a three-point lead into next weekend's season finale at Homestead.
Stewart led a race-high 160 of the 312 laps, but had to stop for gas with 18 laps remaining. He then had to work his way back toward the front, and passed Jeff Burton with a lap to go to finish right behind Edwards.
It was Kahne's first victory since Atlanta in 2009, and it comes in his next-to-last race with Red Bull Racing. He's moving to Hendrick Motorsports next season, and Red Bull is pulling out of NASCAR.
Burton finished fourth and was followed by Ryan Newman.
