Kahne wins Darlington truck race

Kasey Kahne makes driving in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series look easy.

The Enumclaw native picked up his third truck series victory Saturday in the Too Tough to Tame 200 at Darlington Raceway.

It was his first start behind the wheel of a truck this season and the fourth for his career.

With pervious wins at Darlington and Homestead-Miami Speedway, the victory made Kahne the first driver in the truck series to win three of his first four starts. He finished second last year at Pocono Raceway.

Kahne, a veteran of NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series, was driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports, a Toyota usually piloted by team owner Kyle Busch, who was on vacation.
