Cup: Charlotte - Race results

Kasey Kahne emerged triumphant from the longest race on the NASCAR Sprint Cup calendar, the four-hour Coca-Cola 600 endurance race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Now that Hendrick Motorsport have finally broken through the 200th win landmark, it seems they can't stop winning. This time it was the newest recruit to the Hendrick driver line-up to make it to victory lane, with Kasey Kahne taking his 13th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win in his 300th start.

It's Kahne's first victory in 2012, and it came at a track he's enjoyed and had much success at in the past - he's won four times at the 1.5-mile intermediate Charlotte Motor Speedway and finished in the top ten nine times in 17 races.

Greg Biffle finished in fourth place despite leading the most laps - 204 of the 400 lap race distance - and maintains a 10pt lead over Denny Hamlin in tne Sprint Cup points standings.
