Evernham, Kahne have one more shot

Ray Evernham has won at least one race in every full season that he’s fielded full-time Nextel Cup teams, but that could end Sunday.

Kasey Kahne starts third, Patrick Carpentier 28th and Elliott Sadler 31st in the Ford 400.

“I would feel a lot better heading into this winter if I could end it with a win,” Kahne said. “I think everyone would. It would help our team.

“It would just feel good to win the final race and you could feel good about something. Anytime you win, whether it’s any type of race, feels good. I’d probably forget about the rest of the year if I could get a win on Sunday.”
