Kasey Kahne Racing–2017 Preview

Kasey Kahne Racing

New season, new partners, new people and 1,000,000 views

We’re less than a week away from the 2017 World of Outlaws season, as the KKR teams prepare to head out to Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida early next week. We will run with the All-Star Circuit of Champions on Wednesday and Thursday night, and The World of Outlaws season will officially kick off Friday night with three straight nights of racing through Sunday.

We’d like to welcome NAPA AUTO PARTS to the KKR family! They will split the season with Ollie’s Bargain Outlet on Brad Sweet’s No. 49 team, and Great Clips returns to the No. 9 with 2013 champion Daryn Pittman behind the wheel.

Championship winning crew chief Kale Kahne will move from the No. 9 to the No. 49 car this season, while Pennsylvania crew chief Eric Prutzman joins the family and will oversee the No. 9 team.

Fans are thirsty for the season to get started, as illustrated by some fun posts we’ve had on social media the past week. A video posted to KKR’s Facebook page of the No. 49 idling behind the shop got over 1.2 million views, and a video of the No. 9 on track during our Volusia test last week hit over 700,000 screens.
