Kahne at Kansas Speedway

Kahne on Kansas Speedway

"Kansas is considered one of the 1.5-mile cookie cutter tracks and is most similar to the track in Chicago, with a little less banking. It's a fast, smooth track and despite the fact that it is one of the newer tracks on the circuit, it has developed a nice wide racing groove that seems to get better every year. I look forward to going back this year with first -rate equipment and great team behind me and seeing what we can do."

Primary Sponsor

The Ragu® pasta sauce logo will adorn the hood of the No. 6 Dodge Charger in this weekend's event at Kansas Speedway.

Equipment

Kahne will drive chassis No. 9 in this weekend's United Way 300. Chassis No. 9 last saw action at California Speedway where Kahne started 2nd and finished 5th.
