Kahne Holds Off Leffler To Win At Bristol

Kasey Kahne passed Ryan Newman with eight laps to go and held off Jason Leffler to win the Busch Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The race was marred by a NASCAR scoring error against Kyle Busch. That cost Busch a chance to run for the win. Busch was penalized with 77 laps to go because NASCAR said he violated the pit-road commitment line. He had to forfeit his second-place position, a penalty NASCAR later said was incorrect.

But it was too late by then, as Busch had dropped all the way back to 28th. Busch wound up fourth.
