Leavine Family Racing (LFR) has named Jon Leonard as the interim crew chief of the No. 95 Camaro ZL1 driven by veteran driver, Kasey Kahne, in a personnel change effective today for the organization.
Leonard has served as the team’s lead engineer in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and also served as the team’s interim crew chief for the final five races of the 2017 season. The change atop the No. 95 pit box will take effect as the series returns to competition at Sonoma Raceway for the first road course race of the season after having taken a weekend off.-LFR Jun 16 - 9:45 AM

Green Flag pit stops started when Ryan Blaney opened the window on lap 17 and ending with Kasey Kahne on lap 37. Kasey Kahne stayed out in the hopes of catching a caution and gaining an advantage over the field.

As the races continues teams that are not running up front will continue to make these calls, but the gamble comes with older tires and slower lap times.
Jun 3 - 2:58 PM

Kasey Kahne tagged the wall on lap 42 of the KC Masterpiece 400.

Kahne flattened the right side of his car, but does not seem to have slowed dramatically. He remains a potentially strong dark horse.
May 12 - 8:40 PM

Kasey Kahne will start 34th in the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway since he was one of six drivers who failed to clear inspection in time to make a qualification lap.

Kahne still has a chance to climb into the top 15, but even if he records a top-20 now, he will be a good value in games that offer place-differential points.
May 11 - 8:18 PM

Since leaving Daytona International Speedway, Kasey Kahne has finished in a narrow range of 19th to 24th in the last four races.

Kahne’s Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) effort netted one of the 24th-place finishes, so fantasy owners should look for him to be on the higher side of that range this week. If he qualifies worse than 25th, he should be a lock to earn positive place-differential points.

Kasey Kahne has shown a lot of consistency during his past two weeks with a 21st at Atlanta Motor Speedway and a 19th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Those are the kind of results that will allow the Leavine Family Racing team to generate a good set of notes. Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway is a driver’s track, so Kahne’s experience could play a big difference. With a little luck, he could challenge for a top-15.
Mar 7 - 5:39 PM

Kasey Kahne posted the 10th-fastest single lap in final practice for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 173.964 mph.

Not much has been expected from Kahne on unrestricted, intermediate speedways this early in the season, so a top-10 time in Happy Hour is certainly notable. It is unlikely that he will be able to finish that well and will probably lose a few spots from his 14th-place qualification, but he will be a provisionally good value if he finishes in the top 20.
Feb 24 - 7:12 PM

Kasey Kahne will make his first start on an unrestricted speedway this week with Leavine Family Racing, and for the moment his handicap should reflect both his and the team’s record.

Fortunately, those two are close on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Kahne recorded an average finish of 19.8 last year with Hendrick Motorsports; Leavine Family Racing scored a 22.9 with Michael McDowell behind the wheel, so players can expect a finish of about 20th this week.
Feb 24 - 8:59 AM

Kasey Kahne and Leavine Family Racing’s (LFR) stellar run at Daytona International Speedway ended early after a second-stage wreck provided no way out for Kahne and the No. 95 Procore Camaro ZL1.

Kahne started 26th and quickly worked his way into the Top-15. He made it as far as fifth place before getting bumped loose and was forced to dive down pit road. Kahne dropped back to 37th and was no longer in the draft. Kahne began the second stage in 11th, making it back up to as high as sixth place. On lap 101 the front of the pack began to wreck, providing no way out for Kahne. He was unable to avoid the wreckage, ending his day early.-LFR

Kasey Kahne will drive for a new team this year when he climbs behind the wheel of the No. 95, but that is unlikely to change his handicap. He is still a great value on this restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

Kahne scored three top-10s in four plate races last year largely because he managed to stay out of trouble in every event until the fall Alabama 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway—and he scored an eighth-place finish there despite sustaining some damage. The restrictor-plate, superspeedways are great tracks for dark horses and Kahne has already shown some strength in prelims.
Feb 15 - 5:21 PM

Leavine Family Racing (LFR) will compete on February 11th in the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway for the first time with veteran driver, Kasey Kahne.

Since the team's inception in 2011, 2018 marks the third year LFR has been a full-time competitive Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) team. 2018 will be a year of firsts for the one-car team, as Kahne brings a total of 18 wins in the MENCS to the table. "This year is a little different now that we have the Clash," said team owner, Bob Leavine. "We'll get 75 laps in the Clash for Kasey to get a feel for the car before the duels and the 500, so it's just a perfect situation for us with a new driver, new Crew Chief and a couple new people working on the car." Kahne, who is getting a fresh start this year with LFR, is looking forward to making his mark in 2018 early with his new team.-LFR

Based on his last three years’ stats, Kasey Kahne is most likely to excel on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he might be little more than a sleeper with his new Leavine Family Racing team.

Kahne has earned only nine top-fives in the past three years, but three of these came on the 1.5-milers. His best effort on them was a third at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2016, followed by a fourth at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 2017 and at Kansas Speedway in 2015. He also finished fourth at Richmond International Raceway, which behaves similarly. And while his single win in the past three years came at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last season, that victory is not representative of his recent efforts; his next best effort was an 18th in 2016.
Jan 29 - 1:02 PM

Leavine Family Racing on Tuesday morning unveiled its first paint scheme for the No. 95 Procore Chevrolet Camaro.

Procore is scheduled to be on Kasey Kahne‘s car for six races each in 2018 and 2019, including the season-opening Daytona 500 and the Advance Auto Parts Clash, both held during February’s Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway. The announcement was made at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. Kahne will drive the car in the entire NASCAR Cup season.

Kasey Kahne spent much of his final trip to Las Vegas as a Hendrick Motorsports driver duly celebrating his time with the championship team and eagerly anticipating a big change in his career: A move to the single-car Leavine Family Racing operation for the 2018 season.

Kahne finished out his six-year, six-win tenure in the Hendrick No. 5 Chevrolet with a playoff run that ended in the Round of 16, but gave a glimpse of why this year’s Brickyard 400 winner has been a contender in NASCAR’s highest levels. It’s all been good preparation for a fresh start next year and Kahne said he’s already been to his new digs to meet his new team and start prepping the car for his LFR debut in the Feb. 18 Daytona 500.

Leavine Family Racing (LFR) has announced that Travis Mack will assume Crew Chief duties for the No. 95 with driver Kasey Kahne in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.

Mack, who is the car chief for Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports team, has worked as a car chief since 2013 and served as interim Crew Chief for the No. 88 team for one race at Richmond Raceway in 2017. Before becoming a car chief, Mack worked with the likes of Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson as a shock specialist and front end mechanic. In 2013, he moved to Hendrick Motorsports affiliate JR Motorsports, where he served as car chief for drivers Regan Smith and Chase Elliott in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Mack earned an XFINITY Series championship in 2014 as a member of Elliott’s team. He joined Earnhardt’s No. 88 team as car chief in 2015.-LFR
