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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed of 126.357 mph was set in the final minutes of practice when track conditions are the closest to what drivers will face Friday night.

Kahne has been on the cusp of being a great value all season, but he seems to be star-crossed. There is no empirical reason to avoid him in the race, but fantasy owners are fairly nervous.

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Food City 500 Supporting Steve Byrnes and Stand Up to Cancer. His top speed was 126.829 mph.

Kahne rolls off the grid eighth on Sunday. He is putting together a complete weekend and should be one of this week’s best values. He has struggled at times during 2015 and could be overlooked by the competition.

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in Bristol’s first practice session. His top speed was 14.971 seconds, which equals 128.168 mph.

Kahne beat his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. by one-thousandth of a second, which proves how tight the numbers are on this bullring. Traffic will be exacerbated by close times and make it increasingly difficult to pass.

Kasey Kahne finished eighth in the Duck Commander 500 and capped off a sweep of the top-10 by Hendrick Motorsports. His teammates Jimmie Johnson won, Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third, and Jeff Gordon finished seventh.

In addition, second-place Kevin Harvick and sixth-place Jamie McMurray are powered by Hendrick engines. The organization may well be the strongest in the field on any given weekend.
Apr 12 - 9:54 AM

Kasey Kahne posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Duck Commander 500 at Texas. His top speed was 190.975 mph.

Kahne was second-fastest in the first practice session with a speed of 190.463 mph and during that session he also had the quickest 10-lap average. Kahne is setting himself up as a favorite for Saturday night.
Apr 10 - 3:20 PM

Kasey Kahne posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session at Texas. His speed was 185.768 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Kahne won the 2006 spring Texas race from the pole and has earned only three top-fives there since. His record makes him a dark horse, but if he backs this up with a strong final practice and qualification effort, he will be worth the risk.
Apr 10 - 1:28 PM

The first six races of 2015 have revealed a three-step process for Kasey Kahne. He finishes top-10 in one race and then fails to crack that mark in his next two attempts.

Kahne’s worst finishes so far, however, have been a pair of 17ths at Vegas and Auto Club. If the pattern holds, he should be due another top-10 at Texas, but since his highest results were on other unrestricted, intermediate speedways, that might be a stretch.
Apr 7 - 2:07 PM

Kasey Kahne finished fourth in the CampingWorld.com 500, which was his first top-five since his victory last fall in the Oral-B 500. That Atlanta victory was 16 races ago.

Kahne remained in contention through the entire Phoenix race, but he earned only two top-10s in between his last two top-fives. One of top-10s came in this season’s Daytona He should be watched closely in the coming weeks to see if he can develop some momentum.
