Kasey Kahne was born in Enumclaw, Washington on April 10, 1980. Kasey became interested in racing at a young age. His father, Kelly Kahne, owned several sprint cars. Kasey loved spending time at local dirt tracks. When he was 18, Kasey began racing full-size sprint cars. In 2002, Kasey signed with Robert Yates racing, and ran in the NASCAR Busch Series. He best finish that year was 10th, at Michigan International Speedway. He got his first Busch Series win in 2003, at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In that same year, Kasey was chosen to replace Bill Elliott and drive for the No. 9 Dodge for Ray Evernham and Evernham Motorsports. He was excited about this opprotunity and accepted the role of a full-time driver. In 2004, he was named as NASCAR's Rookie Of The Year. He was driving for both the Busch Series and the Nextel Cup Series. He captured his first Nextel Cup win on May 14, 2005 at Richmond International Speedway. His career has been moving up hill since then. To date, Kasey has had 33 Top-10 finishes, 24 Top-5 finishes, and 5 wins. 4 of those wins have been in the 2006 season, the most wins this season so far. On May 28, 2006 Kasey captured the Coca-Cola 600, his third win of the season. Kasey had stopped Jimmie Johnson's 3 season streak at that track. Kasey's NASCAR career is running smoothly, and he's loving every minute of it, especially since he has his family around him...on and off track.
