For the first time all season, Kasey Kahne earned back-to-back top-10s when he crossed under the checkers sixth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway on the heels of a ninth last week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
In both races, Kahne quietly earned his finish and that is a good omen heading to Charlotte where this organization has had so much success. Kahne should be treated as a rising value for fantasy owners. Oct 4 - 8:42 PM

The Cup drivers got a few minutes of practice in on Saturday morning and after about 25 minutes, Kasey Kahne sat atop the leaderboard with a fastest lap of 160.506 mph. Kahne also posted the quickest 10-lap average with a 158.755 mph run from laps seven through 16.

Kahne is finally coming into his own and catching up with the Chase contending teammates. Because of his struggles early in the season, his salary cap is much cheaper and he is a better value overall.

Kasey Kahne finished ninth in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to earn his first top-10 in the past 12 races. Previous to this run, he finished eighth at Sonoma Raceway in June.

Kahne’s latest top-five came in May. That is significant because it was scored at Dover, which is the site of next week’s venue. If Kahne can manage to finish strong in the AAA 400, it will be the first time this season that he scored back-to-back top-10s.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway is one of 11 tracks where Kahne (No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet SS) has notched a career victory.

The driver won at the 1.058-mile oval in 2012 after starting on the front row in the second position. He battled to take the lead for most of the race, but with 66 laps to go, Kahne finally took over the top spot and stayed there all the way to Victory Lane where he received the track’s iconic trophy – a lobster. The win marked his first at the track and his 14th career victory. Kahne now has 17 career victories.-Hendrick Motorsports

Sprint Cup driver Kasey Kahne (No. 5 Great Clips Chevrolet SS), along with partner Great Clips, will be performing double duty this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway, driving the No. 88 Great Clips Chevrolet Camaro for JR Motorsports.

Saturday’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race will mark Kahne’s fifth start of the season in that series. His best NXS finish of 2015 (third) came earlier this year at Charlotte Motor Speedway, also a 1.5-mile track.-Hendrick Motorsports

Kasey Kahne had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the final practice for the Jeff Kyle 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 174.757 mph in the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 14 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. 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.

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.
Jun 19 - 8:40 PM

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.
May 30 - 8:25 AM

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.
May 23 - 2:12 PM

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.
