Kasey Kahne Racing – Results Recap
April 23 through April 30
KKR teams head back east
The World of Outlaws tour had two stops on their way back east after over a month out on the west coast and Texas: Salina, OK on Friday April 25th and Pevely, MO on Saturday April 26th.
All three Kasey Kahne Racing teams grabbed top-10 finishing positions at Salina Highbanks, but the race was shortened when track conditions turned unsatisfactory as it “rubbered up,” and got extremely fast. The soft tire compound made for dangerous conditions as tires began to fail throughout the field. Brad Sweet captured the KSE Hard Charger Award that evening by advancing eight spots before the checkered flag abruptly flew on lap 24 of the scheduled 30.
Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 the next night was rough for the 49 and 4 teams when both were collected in an early multi-car crash that ended their evenings. However Daryn Pittman and the 9 team finished fifth and kept the points race between the top five cars very close.
The teams returned back to the KKR shop on Sunday night late, and it was the first time dating back to early March since they had been home.
