Kasey Kahne comments
“I feel really, really good,” Kahne stated.
“I’m excited to go full-time Sprint Car Racing again this year and I feel like personally, I got a lot better last year going this route. We definitely had a lot of ups and downs during 2022, so I’m hoping for a much smoother and more successful season this year.”
“Getting that first [World of Outlaws] win is obviously at the top of our bucket list, and it would be huge,” Kahne added. “We’ve been fortunate enough to win so many races with so many drivers at KKR, but I want to be on that list too.”
“It feels incredibly rewarding to win as an owner considering all I’ve put into the sport and continue to put into it, but purely as a race car driver, I want to win myself. It’s been a while since I felt that and that feeling is why we do it, it’s why we love racing.”
The Maxim Chassis car is powered by Cappetta Engines.
