It’s understandable that driver Kasey Kahne and crew chief Kenny Francis haven’t been poring over the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format. Up until last Sunday’s 11th-hour victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Kahne and the No. 5 team weren’t part of NASCAR’s 10-race playoff. So it’s no surprise that Kahne and Francis both needed a refresher course on the new elimination...

It took a long time to get there, but Kasey Kahne has his win and a spot in the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup. Kahne shrewdly maneuvered his No. 5 car from third to first on the final restart that was the second attempt at a green-white-checkered finish of Atlanta Motor Speedway’s only Cup […]

To put it mildly, the 2013 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup hasn't gone quite to Kasey Kahne's liking. To put it bluntly, this season's playoff segment has been a major disappointment for the driver of the No. 5 Chevrolet.
With three races down and seven to go, Kahne is last among the 13 Chase drivers and carrying a 78-point deficit to championship leader Matt Kenseth...
Loudon, NH- Kasey Kahne is now pretty far back in the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup standings after two of the 10 races.
After looking like he would have a good day and potentially win, Kahne crashed his No. 5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet with 48 laps-to-go. He had his No. 5 Chevy in fifth at the time and his day and Chase dreams were ruined at that point.
He finished a disappointing...
Jimmie Johnson couldn't believe that his Hendrick Motorsports teammate -- and last week's winner at Bristol Motor Speedway -- Kasey Kahne actually "got ink" during his West Coast adventures.
"Do we have confirmation that he got ink? I saw the picture, but I couldn't see any ink," Johnson said. "I saw his little sleeve rolled up with that little...
