The No. 13 turns out to be lucky for Kasey Kahne on Sunday.
Kahne won NASCAR's longest race, the Coca-Cola 600 in Concord, NC, for his 13th career Cup victory. It was Kahne's third victory in the 600 and his first for Hendrick Motorsports. Kahne won in 2008 and 2006.
Denny Hamlin placed second, followed by Kyle Busch, series points leader Greg Biffle and Brad Keselowski. Dale Earnhardt Jr. placed sixth.
Kahne dominated the last 30 laps at Charlotte Motor Speedway for his first Cup win of the season.
Danica Patrick, in her third Sprint Cup race of the season, finished 30th for her best career Cup finish.
With 20 laps to go, Kahne was in front and was pretty much unchallenged.
Hamlin and Earnhardt hoped to take advantage of a yellow flag on Lap 318 for debris.
