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.

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.
