Kasey Kahne: “I still feel really young. But, at the same time, I’ve been doing this a long time.”
Back in September 2017 it was announced that Kasey Kahne would leave the super team of Hendrick Motorsport. In turn, he’s signed with a much smaller organization, Leavine Family Racing.
Kahne has stated multiple times that he see’s the transition as an opportunity. He still feels there’s growth and good things to come for LFR. In addition, Kahne feels he can play a big role in the success of the team.
“I’ve always enjoyed that side of racing. When I started, my dad made me work on cars. That was the only way I was going to get to drive, if I understood the cars,” Kasey Kahne explains to Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
“To me, I like that. I don’t know how hands on I’ll be, twisting wrenches. But, I definitely feel like I can bring a lot to the team.”
“I’ve been around for years now. I still feel really young. But, at the same time, I’ve been doing this a long time. I think I can bring some thing that I’ve learned over the years.”
“I know what it takes to win and to be a team. I still look at what Leavine has done prior to me. Where they’ve came from and where they’re at in our sport, in a short period of time up against all these big teams.”
“You can see that they want to keep improving. That makes me feel good — it excites me.”
Kasey Kahne has spent the last 14 years of his full-time racing career in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He’s collected 18 wins in the series. The most recent win came last year in the famed Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
