sey Kahne nipped Regan Smith at the Daytona International Speedway finish line Friday night for his first Nationwide Series victory since 2007.
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.
Smith, who won the season-opener at the track in February, wound up second. Sieg was a career-best third.
It was Kahne's first Nationwide victory since 2007 at Bristol.
