Kahne wins Sage Fruit Showdown

At a track he grew up racing, Enumclaw’s Kasey Kahne returned home to win the Sage Fruit Showdown Friday night at Skagit Speedway.

Kahne, who now runs the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit, was running second behind Seth Bergman for the first half of the 360 sprint 20-lap main event.

Kahne bested the field on a late-race restart to earn his first trip to victory lane since the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup in 2003.
