 Bristol, Tenn. (AP) - Kasey Kahne was fed up with all of Joe Gibbs Racing by the time contact with Matt Kenseth ended his race at Watkins Glen earlier this month.



It was the fourth time a JGR driver had wrecked him, and he took to Twitter to voice his displeasure, posting: "Headed to Joe Gibbs Racing to talk to whoever will come out front."


But when he had his chance Saturday night to right all of those wrongs, Kahne passed.


A clean racer to his core, he trailed Kenseth for a dozen laps around 

Bristol Motor Speedway, trying every which way possible to pass him without wrecking him and failing miserably. The result was Kenseth grabbing his Sprint Cup Series leading fifth win of the season, while Kahne settled for a disappointing second.


"I don't know," sighed Kahne. "I just ... I think at the end of the day, I just don't wreck people."
