Kevin Harvick dominated the race, but Kahne found himself in the lead late, holding off Harvick. A late caution setup a green-white-checker finish. The first attempt saw Harvick hit the wall, leading to a second attempt. On the second run, Kahne got past Matt Kenseth and pulled away for his first win of the year.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kahne had 15/1 odds to win this race coming into the week, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $1,500.

Kahne moves up to 11th in the standings, 144 points out of first, but the win was the crucial part to advancing. Jeff Gordon maintains his spot on top of the standings, 21 points ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gordon was 17th on Sunday while Earnhardt Jr. was 11th.
