NASCAR Coke 600 2012 Results: Kasey Kahne Picks Up First Win Of The Season

On Sunday, the two Washington drivers had a great day in the 2012 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The race was beneficial in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings for both Greg Biffle and for Kasey Kahne, who took the checkered flag and won his first race of the year in what was his 300th career start. It's also Kahne's first win since becoming a part of Hendrick Motorsports.

This was a huge win for Kahne, as he jumps all the way up to 15th in the Sprint Cup standings and just seven points in back of the second Wild Card spot, which is currently held by Ryan Newman. There are still 14 races remaining before the cutoff and the Chase for the Sprint Cup, so if Kahne keeps this streak of impressive driving going, he could grab that spot or something much better.

Biffle finished in fourth place and will remain the overall points leader in the standings, picking up 10 points on the second-place driver Matt Kenseth.
