Kasey Kahne from Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet wins the NASCAR Food City 500 race at Bristol

The NASCAR sprint driver Kasey Kahne has waited long for his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Victory and in the Sunday’s Food City 500 race at Bristol, Kahne in the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, has finally claimed the flawless victory, which came at the nineteenth attempt at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and no one is more happy than him. And for the marvelous teamwork of the Hendrick Motorsports, has earned them the eleventh NASCAR Sprint Cup Series  triumph at Bristol.

While Kyle Busch in his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota has secured the second position. Kyle was the pole position runner but made an early-race speeding penalty. On the other hand, with 166 points, the overall 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series lead racer, Brad Keselowski in his No. 2 Penske Racing Ford car, has earned the tight 3rd position. He was battling with the Kurt Busch, in the No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet, in the final laps but sent Kurt to satisfy with the 4th position.

If we see the laps tally, Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota was most of the time in the front with 117 led laps but due to his old tires in the last racing laps, has forced him to go to the 23rd position finish. Hamlin has also responsible for the Logano’s car No. 22 Penske Racing Ford to sent him at 17th position finish, and both had heated arguments after the finish.

For most of the drivers the tire blowout became their bad luck which includes both, Jeff Gordon in the No. 24 Chevrolet and Jimmie Johnson in the No. 48 Chevrolet, from Hendrick Motorsports. And the Jeff Gordon’s tire burst has became tragic for Matt Kenseth who was driving the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Toyota, when 110 laps were left, both lending-up to the do-not-finish zone due to the accident. On the other hand, Jimmie Johnson finished the race at 22nd position, losing the overall position lead position by 2 and now at the third overall position with 151 points.
