  • DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kasey Kahne nipped Regan Smith at the Daytona International Speedway finish line Friday night for his first Nationwide Series victory since 2007.
    Kahne weaved his way through traffic during a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, but didn't appear to be in the mix for a shot at the win as Smith pulled away from the pack. But as the field hurtled through the final turn, Kyle Larson jumped out of line and made it three-wide behind Smith.
    Kahne moved into the top lane and, using a push from Ryan Sieg, charged alongside Smith and beat him to the line by .021 seconds.
    It was the sixth win this season for JR Motorsports, and second consecutive following Kevin Harvick's victory last week at Kentucky.
