KASEY KAHNE SURVIVES EARLY SPIN TO LEAD THE CHARGE FOR TEAM CHEVY AT MICHIGAN
CHEVROLET CAPTURES FOUR OF THE TOP-10 FINISHING POSITIONS
On lap 68 of the 200-lap Pure Michigan 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, Kasey Kahne and his No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet avoided a multi-car wreck and slid through the infield grass of Michigan International Speedway. A fast race car, minor repairs by the crew, and 132 laps later, Kahne and the No. 5 team had rallied back to the fourth position as the field roared to life for a final green-white-checkered finish. Kahne was able to gain one position before the checkered flag fell to come home third. This was his fourth top-10 finish in the last seven races.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., who had started the race in the rear of the field in a back-up No. 88 National Guard/Diet Mountain Dew Chevrolet, also rallied back from a rough weekend at MIS to take a fourth place finish behind his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. Kahne and Earnhardt Jr. led Team Chevy by taking two of the top five finishing spots.
