CORD, N.C. -- Rick Hendrick took the microphone during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for one of his new dealerships on Tuesday and asked Kasey Kahne if he was going to win Sunday's Coca-Cola 600.

Kahne, in his typical bashful way, said he hoped to.

"That's not good enough," the owner of Hendrick Motorsports said in a way that demanded a stronger reply.

Responded Kahne, "I will win the Coke 600."

And he did.

He did it in dominating fashion, beating Denny Hamlin to the checkered flag by more than four seconds.
[Kahne scored his first victory under the Hendrick Motorsports banner Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

This was the kind of night Kahne envisioned when he agreed to move to Hendrick Motorsports two years ago while still under contract at Richard Petty Motorsports. This was the kind of night Hendrick envisioned when he signed Kahne to replace Mark Martin in the No. 5 after the 2011 season.
