Kasey Kahne drove to victory Sunday night in the Coca-Cola 600 in Concord, North Carolina.

It is the third win of his career in NASCAR’s longest race and the first as a driver for Hendrick Motorsports.

Kahne took the checkered flag almost five seconds ahead of Denny Hamlin. Kyle Busch finished third and Greg Biffle, the Sprint Cup points leader was fourth.

Kahne is the 16th Hendrick driver to win a race.

Kahne’s win also gave owner Rick Hendrick his 201st Sprint Cup series win.

Danica Patrick became the first woman to drive in the race since Janet Guthrie in 1976. Patrick was five laps down at the end of the race but finished 30th. It was her best finish in three career Sprint Cup races.

Danica’s next Sprint Cup race will be on August 25 at Bristol Motor Speedway,

Jimmie Johnson broke loose on a restart three laps from the ending of the Southern 500 and held over the weekend to give Hendrick Motorsports its 200th Sprint Cup win.

Johnson, whom you can never count out of a race, seemed like he would come up short on low fuel and worn tires and with Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch right on his heels and he was chasing Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman spun out with six laps left to go at Darlington Raceway.

Once the green flag was dropped, Johnson took off from Stewart and cruised to his first win since Kansas last October, breaking a 16-race winless drought for the five-time NASCAR champion and the Rick Hendrick racing team.

It was Johnson’s third win at the South Carolina track, but the first since he swept the 2004 events, the last season Darlington had two cup races.

Denny Hamlin finished second, followed by Stewart, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. finished 17 and his Sprint Cup winless streak goes to 140 laps.

Eventhough Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won only one race since leaving his father’s company, Dale Earnhardt Inc., Hendrick Motorsports has given him a five-year contract extension.

Junior’s last win came at Michigan in 2008.

Earnhardt left his Late father’s race team at the end of the 2007 season to join car owner Rick Hendrick’s team.

The surprising extension to most racing observers, will keep NASCAR’s most popular driver with Hendrick through the 2017 season.

Both sides said that they wanted to continue the relationship.

The inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway will be remembered for a long, long time for the traffic problems on Interstate 71 as the race itself.

An estimated crowd of 107,000 who did get into the race for the Quaker State 400 on Saturday, saw a very competitive race under ideal conditions.

David Reutimann, driving the #00 Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing, finished second behind race winner Kyle Busch.

2011 has not been kind to Reutimann, as he has finished had a tough time of it. In 20 races, he had garnered a 3rd place finish at the NASCAR All-Star race on May 21.  He then finished ninth in the Coca-Cola 600 the next weekend on May 29.

Jimmie Johnson, who has won the NASCAR championship a record five straight years, came in third driving the #48 Lowes Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports. Johnson is very much in the hunt for The Chase this year. He has one first-place finish, one second-place, three 3rd place spots and two 4th place finishes.

As planned, the race went into its first caution on Lap 30 for a competition yellow.

#60 Mike Skinner, the winner of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events at the Kentucky Speedway in 2007, was the first car off the track, headed into the garage after completing 17 laps.
