BRISTOL, TN - Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne waged one of the memorable battles from the 2013 season.<br /> <br /> For nearly 20 laps, two of NASCAR's marquee talents ran side-by-side, inches apart, navigating Bristol's high banks in a thrilling show of expertise and competitive desire.<br /> <br /> Kenseth won that race, like so many others during the 2013 season. In all he won seven, more than any other NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver.<br /> <br /> Kahne finished second, just short of a Bristol sweep. He won the springrace in convincing fashion, leading 109 laps.<br /> <br /> Considering the state both are in this season, that seems way longer than 12 months ago. Both drivers are winless, neither have clinched a spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, and time is running out.<br /> <br /> Heading into the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway let's take a deeper dive into both drivers' predicaments.<br /> <br /> Matt Kenseth: All things considered, it's good to be Matt Kenseth. Jeff Gordon's win at Michigan
