Kahne steers Red Bull to first win of season

  • Nov 14, 2011 at 2:21PM

Perfect timing on a green-flag pit stop helped Kasey Kahne cruise past the checkered flag before NASCAR Sprint Cup points leader Carl Edwards Sunday in the Kobalt Tools 500 from Phoenix International Raceway. It was the Enumclaw driver’s 12th victory in 287 NASCAR Sprint Cup races and his first win since September 2009. The win on the recently reconfigured Arizona race track ended an 81-race dry spell for Kahne. “It was a big win for the whole Red Bull team,” Kahne said in post-race comments. “All our guys did an awesome job. To win on a track like this, it was technical at times. Early in the race, it was different than any time I’ve been on it. “It was just different,” said Kahne of the track changes. “We had to work on the car as the rubber came on the track, then it started changing more. It was a hard-fought day. The Red Bull team did a great job with the pit stops and the adjustments throughout the race to get us back to the front, just put us in position to have a shot.”
