AREA AUTO RACING NEWS NEWSMAKER OF THE WEEK FOR TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2016
NASCAR Sprint Cup Star Kasey Kahne’s racing pedigree is of dirt track Sprint Car racing.
So when word leaked out that Kahne would be spending the off-week from his busy Cup schedule in Central Pennsylvania, racing a Sprint Car, PA Posse fans readied for something special.
Kahne wasn’t a factor Friday at Williams Grove but oh, what he did the next night at Lincoln!
With a big crowd cheering him on, Kahne won the 410 Sprint feature in spectacular style.
This was high drama, newsmaking stuff.
So it is that Kasey Kahne, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, is AARN’s Newsmaker Of The Week. Not for some high profile race win somewhere, but rather for returning to his racing roots and showing he’s lost nothing of the skills that got him noticed.
