Kasey Kahne Forced to End Season Early

Citing health concerns, Kasey Kahne announced on Tuesday that he will not return to the No. 95 Leavine Racing Family entry before season’s end. The 38-year-old had previously revealed the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series campaign would be his last full-time.

Earlier this year, he opened up about having issues remaining hydrated through the full distance of races to the point he was feeling sick and having issues in the weeks following. Kahne hasn’t been behind the wheel since Darlington Raceway.

The Washington native released a statement via his social media accounts.

Over the past 15 years, Kahne has made a total of 529 starts with 18 wins, 93 top-five’s, and 176 top-10’s to his credit. His best season ending points finish was fourth in 2012.
