Bashas' Supermarkets 200 - Busch race
Share This Story
The Bashas' Supermarket 200 was originally set for 200 laps, however, rain showers began to drench the track as the green-flag fell which lead to nearly a three-hour delay. On lap 176, rain began to fall again, and the race was eventually called at lap 181 with Bobby Hamilton, Jr., as the race leader.
"We had a really good car today, and I just hate this for the Great Clips team," said Kahne. "This was actually the best short-track car that we've had all year.
"(Stacy) Compton wouldn't give me any room out there. He hasn't given me any room all year long. He was going to run me into the wall, so I had to come down to prevent him from wrecking me. He was racing on two new tires, while we had pitted and changed four, so we were definitely faster than he was.
"This team did a great job today and gave me a great car for today's race. It's unfortunate that this happened for us, but I guess all we can do is look ahead to Rockingham next weekend."
Kahne currently sits in ninth in the NASCAR Busch Series overall driver point standings.
Hamilton, Jr., took the checkered flag, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers, Joe Nemechek and Ron Hornaday, Jr., to complete the top five.
