After having a pair of finishes outside of the top 15 to start the season, Kasey Kahne was able to come home second in the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after leading the most laps.
“I just had an awesome car,” he said. “It felt about perfect, I think, throughout three quarters of that race.”
It looked as if Kahne would take the victory closing into the final laps, but Kenseth was able to hold on after taking two tires while Kahne took four.
