Kasey Kahne Wins Lenox Industrial Tools 301 At Loudon
The Sprint Cup Series made their first stop of two at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon on Sunday. Kasey Kahne would grab the win for his second of the season and his first at the track.
Pole sitter Kyle Busch looked good at the start of the race as he was battling with Kahne for the lead for about the first 68 laps. Bad luck struck again for Busch as during a pit stop he was penalized for speeding in the pits. Denny Hamlin would take over the lead and dominate battling Kahne and Busch who would make a comeback to make his way back but would have problems on a pit stop again as he would overshoot his pit on a stop. On the restart Kahne would take over the lead while Hamlin would lose many positions due to a miscommunication in the pits, but his car excellent and made up ground quickly. He would get back to second place but wasn’t able to overcome Kahne who would take the checkered flag. Clint Bowyer would end up in third, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Saturday’s Nationwide winner Brad Keselowski would round out the top five.
The Sprint Cup Series will have a week off and start up again on July 29th in Indianapolis for the Brickyard 400. This race will also start ESPN’s NASCAR coverage which will begin at noon in two weeks.
