Kahne expects to run more sprint car races

After a missing last year’s Chili Bowl Nationals, Kasey Kahne is thrilled to be heading to Tulsa again.

He will pilot the #67 Take 5 Oil Change midget prepared by his cousin, Willie Kahne, in the first of many open-wheel opportunities for the driver and World of Outlaws team owner in 2018.

When the NASCAR season starts in five weeks, Kahne will make his debut in the #95 Leavine Family Racing Chevrolet. But his schedule will also include 20 to 30 WoO races alongside his drivers, Daryn Pittman and Brad Sweet.

He will compete in the #4 Kasey Kahne Racing sprint car in selected races. Kahne did not set a concrete schedule because LFR and the No. 95 team remain his top concern.

“I will find the right weekends and weekdays that I can go race so it’s not effecting what I do in the 95, but showing how much I love to race,” Kahne said. “Definitely want to keep the #95 as my priority.”
