Kasey Kahne is rarely the type to get caught up in emotion on the track. He is a clean racer that usually brings home the car in one piece.
Kasey Kahne - The Future Of NASCAR:
He caught the eye of Ray Evernham before he ever had a Nationwide Series victory and took over the #9 Dodge in 2004 when Bill Elliot retired. He splashed on the sport immediately with two second place finishes in his first three Sprint Cup races, losing those two races by a combined .03 seconds. Kasey went on to win Raybestos Rookie of the Year honors in 2004
Kasey has managed to score some wins in Sprint Cup but success in the points has eluded him so far in his career. In order for Kasey to truly claim greatness he will have to master NASCAR's point system and start challenging for the title on a regular basis.
Kahne switched to the legendary Hendrick Motorsports team in 2012, replacing Mark Martin. Kahne should be able to mount a serious challenge for his first Sprint Cup Championship before his three year contract is up.
