Kahne Dominates Spring Championship

Kasey Kahne, in a rare winged sprint car appearance, dominated the 410 Sprint Car Spring Championship at Lincoln Speedway. Kahne, who finished second in his heat race to Danny Dietrich, started on the outside of the front row and led all 30 laps.

“It feels good to get a win. Lincoln is a tough track and has a tough group of racers. It’s a great crowd early in the season. It’s great to be here Easter weekend. We had a great car and we just kept making it better. I have two great drivers, two great teams and crew chiefs, Factory Kahne Shocks, Willie Kahne, everyone who supports our team. It makes my job a lot easier when I don’t get to do this very often and I was on the phone with them all afternoon. I didn’t have a good showing at the Grove (Williams Grove) last night, I passed a few cars and that was it. So to come back tonight and get a great result here was big for all of us,” said Kahne from victory lane.

Brian Montieth, the current track champion, started on the pole and would come home second after challenging Kahne in traffic throughout the nonstop A Main.

Montieth was followed closely by Lucas Wolfe in the Zemco 1Z.

Also, on the ticket was Lincoln Speedway’s 358 Sprints. The feature was won by Chris Arnold over a hard charging Matt Campbell and Adrian Shaffer.

This year’s Sprint Car Spring Championship was given even more definition by the Pay Per View Coverage of Dirt Station.com. The flawless broadcast took viewers who were not fortunate enough to make it to the event right to trackside for the action.
