Sunday, October 15, 2006
Kasey Kahne drove his No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge to victory in the Bank of America 500 Saturday night. Kahne held off Jimmie Johnson allowing him to sweep the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup races at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It was also Kahne's sixth win of the 2006 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series season. In the Chase for the NEXTEL Cup, Kahne moved up one position into ninth place with only five races remaining.
"We had a great car; the Dodge Charger was wonderful," Kahne said. "I have to thank the transmission; I slammed it into second one time and thought I had to have broken something. Everybody at Evernham Motorsports has done a great job."
