CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Kasey Kahne picked up a $1 million payday
Saturday night by gambling on a late pit stop to steal a win in
NASCAR's All-Star race.
Kahne didn't take tires on the pit stop before the fourth and
final 25-lap segment, a decision that helped him restart in second
when the race resumed. He wasn't challenged and easily held off
Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth for the victory.
Kahne wasn't even originally eligible for the race, needing to
finish first or second in the preliminary Sprint Showdown to earn a
berth. He failed to do it - finishing fifth - then earned his spot
through a fan vote.
