No. 2 Brad Keselowski, No. 1 Jamie McMurray, No. 4 Kevin Harvick and No. 48 Jimmie Johnson are the rest of the top five on this list. Jul 24 - 11:57 PM

Kasey Kahne entered last fall’s Sylvania 300 with a seven-race streak of qualifications among the top 10 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He was unable to advance to the final round for that race and slipped to 17th, but he rekindled his form and surged to ninth to start Sunday’s 5-Hour Energy 301.

Starting up front has not helped Kahne very much in recent years because he has not scored a top-10 on this track since 2012. His record this season is too erratic to accurately predict where he will finish this week.

Kasey Kahne finished eighth in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, which was directly behind his teammates Jimmie Johnson in sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in seventh.

The direct lineup of Hendrick Motorsports drivers is undoubtedly a coincidence, but their consistency suggests the teams work well together. That is something fantasy owners want to bear in mind the next time the series rolls onto a track that is traditionally kind to the organization as a whole.

Kasey Kahne has only two top-fives to his credit in the first 15 races this season, but he has been consistent. That contributes to his ninth-place spot in the points and has earned fantasy owners a decent amount as well.

Accidents at Bristol Motor Speedway and Talladega SuperSpeedway are the only reason Kahne has failed to sweep the top 17 this season; 16 drivers make the Chase, so the math works out fairly well for the Hendrick mate.

Kasey Kahne posted a lap of 201.992 mph in the final round of qualification for the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway and will lead the field to green on Sunday.

This is Kahne’s third pole on this track. His first came in 2006 for Ray Evernham and he won that race. His second Michigan pole was not as impressive since he finished 14th in 2010 for Richard Petty Motorsports. Kahne’s last three top-five starts on this two-miler have not been a good omen, however, since he crashed out of two of those races.

Kasey Kahne hopes to break a June Pocono Raceway curse this week. His last three Axalta We Paint Winners 400 attempts all ended outside the top 25 with some type of incident. His last three August races ended with a victory, a second-, and a 10th-place finish.

Kahne crashed in June 2012 and 2014; in 2013, he had a transmission problem. If he can avoid trouble he will easily break that negative streak after advancing to the final round of qualification on Friday. Kahne starts the Axalta 400 12th.

Kasey Kahne kept his Chevrolet in contention in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway and took advantage of a two-tire strategy at the end of the race to gain track position. He held off Martin Truex Jr. and the majority of the field to finish fourth.

That was Kahne’s second top-five of the season and snapped a three-race streak of results outside the top 10. Fantasy owners want to wait and see what kind of consistency he develops, but Kahne could be on the rise.
May 31 - 6:50 PM

Kasey Kahne has made six previous starts with Hendrick Motorsports at Dover International Speedway, but he has managed to earn only one top-10 in that span of time. His best result with this team was a ninth in his first attempt back in 2012.

Kahne came close on two other occasions with top-15s, but given the organization’s and his strength on other courses, the best course of action is to save the No. 5 for another day.

Kasey Kahne posted the quickest average speed in the final practice for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. His average speed of 184.632 mph was set in his first 10 laps on the course during the session.

Kahne also had the second-fastest lap in this practice, which gives him a good balance of speed and consistency. Coupled with a strong Charlotte record, he remains a top value.

Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne won the North Carolina Education Lottery 200, his fifth victory in six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races.

The margin of victory of .005 seconds was tied for the second-closest finish in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series history. Kahne started the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado on the pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway and led 21 laps of the 139 lap event. This is Chevrolet's 200th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. It was also the first victory for JR Motorsports in only two NCWTS starts.

Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne won the Keystone Light Pole Award for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a lap of 29.778 seconds, 181.342 mph.

This is the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado driver's first pole in six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. Erik Jones (second) posted his fifth top-10 start of 2015. Matt Tifft (third) posted his first top-10 start at Charlotte and it is his first in four races this season.
May 15 - 8:24 PM

Sprint Cup regular Kasey Kahne led the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 180.258 mph in the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado. No. 8 Joe Nemechek, No. 14 Daniel Hemric, No. 23 Spencer Gallagher and No. 54 Justin Boston round out the top five of the 35 trucks practicing for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200. Norm Benning in the No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado was the slowest.
May 14 - 10:14 PM

Kasey Kahne posted a lap of 191.911 mph in qualification for the SpongeBob 400 at Kansas Speedway and will line up to the outside of Joey Logano to start Saturday’s race.

Kahne has four other front row starts on this similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track and his results have been mixed afterward. His latest attempt came in 2012 when he won the pole and finished fourth. He also has a pair of 30-something results after leading the field to green, so fantasy owners are cautioned before starting the No. 5.
May 8 - 9:21 PM

Kasey Kahne has been selected to pilot the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet in the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 15.

Kahne will make his first NCWTS start since winning at Rockingham Speedway in 2012. The Charlotte event also complements the 10-race schedule the No. 00 team will run with primary driver, 17-year-old Cole Custer. Said JRM's general manager Kelley Earnhardt Miller: "With Cole’s age, he’s not eligible to compete on some of the bigger tracks, so we had to limit the schedule based on that fact. This opportunity to have Kasey in the truck will help the team evaluate our program on an intermediate track." In five NCWTS starts, Kahne has won four of them (two at Darlington Raceway and one each at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Rockingham Speedway) and never finished worse than second. Along with an average finish of 1.2, he has led 307 of 686 career laps.-JR Motorsports

A missed setup dropped Kahne well down the order to start the Toyota Owners 400. He qualified 40th at Richmond and in the history of this 0.750-mile track, only four drivers—or one percent of the starters—earned a top-10 after rolling off the grid that deep in the pack.

Kahne worked his way into the top 10 relatively quickly and once there, he managed to overcome minor setup adjustments to stay with the leaders. As much as any other performance, this will go a long way to establishing him as a front running fantasy value.
