(This post edited by the moderator to remove the winner's name from the subject line.  Putting the name in the subject line defeats the point of using the term spoiler.)

Kasey Kahne finally gets a win.

Everyone waited for this to happen, and he did it the way most of us thought he would: with a dominating performance at the beginning, middle and end of the race.

I don't think people remember how much car owner Ray Evernham had to go through just to secure Kahne's services.  He was supposed to advance to Cup with a Ford team.  Reportedly, a loophole involving Jason Jarrett starting the 2003 Talladega fall race allowed Kahne to slip away and join the Dodge Dealers team.  Ford sued to try to get Kahne back, but failed.

Side note: Kahne is the 13th driver to win at least one race each in the Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck series.  Five of those (Tony Stewart, Steve Park, Carl Edwards, Bobby Labonte and Kahne) joined the club this year.
