kasey kahne wins the 2013 hottest nascar driver tournament

For the second year in a row Kasey Kahne, driver of the No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports, has won the title of the Hottest NASCAR Driver. Over 17,000 votes were cast in the final round, with Kasey clinching the title with 70% of the vote, leaving runner-up Clint Bowyer with 30%.

Congratulations to Kasey and all of his super loyal fans! Since I didn’t get the opportunity to present Kasey with his award last year my plan is to present BOTH “trophies” (hot sauce) to him at Fontana in March.

Thank you to everyone who voted throughout the rounds. Even if your favorite driver didn’t win I hope you had a fun time throughout the process. :)

    He is “THE” sexiest driver in all series. Like Clint too with his dimples, but no match for Kasey. Glad to know all my votes were not in vain.

    Way to go Kasey.. Didn’t like seeing him up against Clint but really was there any doubt who would win?
