Bristol - Cup results

Kasey Kahne won the Food City 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway, after pulling out a near-two second lead over polesitter Kyle Busch in the closing stint.
Kasey Kahne claimed his first win of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series by clinching the chequered flag in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway for the first time in his Cup career. It's Kahne's 15th win in 328 series starts and his first since going to victory lane at Loudon last July. It's his third win since joining current team Hendrick Motorsports at the start of 2012.

Kahne led 109 of the 500 laps of the half-mile concrete oval on Sunday afternoon, not quite a match for Denny Hamlin who totalled 117 in front but who ended the race bouncing off the outside retaining wall in the closing laps. Other drivers with long turns out in front were Kyle Busch (56 laps) and Brad Keselowski (62), who finished in second and third place respectively. Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth also had extended turns at the front, but Gordon suffered a blown tyre on lap 390 which ended up also collecting Kenseth, taking out both front-running cars out in the same stroke.

Jimmie Johnson also suffered a blown tyre that put him into the wall, and damage meant he ended the race two laps down in 22nd place, which means that Johnson surrenders the lead of the Sprint Cup championship to Brad Keselowski who had a nine point advantage over Dale Earnhardt Jr.
