Kasey Kahne, Rick Hendrick

Brickyard 400 win helps Kahne add to Hendrick resume

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kasey Kahne proved he's still capable of winning races.

Now he must convince team owner Rick Hendrick he still belongs on one of NASCAR's strongest teams.

One day after 19-year-old William Byron won his third Xfinity Series races in less than a month, Kahne overcame dangerous heat, painful muscle cramps and a grueling, crash-marred, six-hour marathon Cup race to earn his first win in almost three years. It might take an even bigger effort to keep his job.
