Hendrick Motorsports | Kasey Kahne doesn't care for Kyle Busch

Sat, 14 Jun 2014 18:48:45 -0700

Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne and Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch got mixed up at Pocono last weekend, and while Busch attempted to send an e-mail and text, Busch says he is not interested. "I think he was having a bad day, and just loses it. But as far as us talking, we haven't. He did write me an e-mail, but I don't really care anymore," Kahne said. "I don't care to talk to him or anything."

Fantasy Tip: Kahne and Busch will be a tandem to watch Sunday at Michigan if they get into close proximity. While the two are two smart to intentionally wreck each other, they could race each other hard again and accidents will happen.

Hendrick Motorsports | Team has six career wins at Kansas

Mon, 05 May 2014 19:29:24 -0700

Hendrick Motorsports drivers Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne each head to Kansas Speedway Saturday, May 10, with two career wins at the track. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the only Hendrick driver without a win at Kansas, and he has an Average Finish of 15.9 in 15 career starts.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a fantasy league which restricts the number of times you can use a driver, Dale Jr. might be best used another weekend. However, Gordon has been performing well lately, and Johnson is certainly due. Both are must-start fantasy options, and Kahne is a nice sleeper as well.

Richard Petty | Kasey Kahne released

Wed, 20 Oct 2010 19:45:39 -0700

Richard Petty Motorsports released driver Kasey Kahne from his ride Wednesday, Oct. 20, which is effective immediately, according to FOXSports.com's Lee Spencer. Red Bull Racing could sign Kahne to a deal in the No. 83 Toyota as early as this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. Driver Aric Almirola will now fill Kahne's seat at Richard Petty Motorsports.

Fantasy Tip: Kahne's 2010 season has been a big disappointment, and this move has solidified his spot outside of the top-ranked drivers. However, keep an eye out to see how he fares with a new team. If he shows promise in his new ride in these last five races, Kahne could be a good bet to rebound next year with Red Bull Racing. Almirola should not be considered for a start this weekend, even as a No. 4 driver.
