After a bit of negotiating, Kasey Kahne will join the Red Bull Racing team in 2011. He will spend one season there before moving to Hendrick Motorsports. "This opportunity places me with an established, competitive team that has proven they can win races and make the Chase," Kahne told reporters on Tuesday. "The opportunity to drive for Red Bull Racing Team in 2011 is a great fit for me, both personally and professionally. "It feels good to be able to finally put this to rest and focus my energy on finishing the season strong for the 9 team and our sponsors.

The economic pinch continues to be a factor in NASCAR after reports surfaced this week that Red Bull plans to end the sponsorship of its two cars at the end of the season. The move would impact the No. 4 team of Kasey Kahne and the No. 83 team of Brian Vickers . It leaves Vickers with far greater uncertainty because Kahne, now in his eighth full-time Cup season, will join Hendrick Motorsports next season. Vickers is in the final year of his contract. The Red Bull team has struggled since joining the NASCAR circuit in 2007.

People sugarcoat all the warts and peccadilloes in honoring the dead. But there will be no revisionist history when his NASCAR friends and family gather Wednesday at Darlington Presbyterian Church for a celebration of Jim Hunter 's life. He was a great guy. Hunter died Friday in Daytona Beach, Fla., after a 12-month battle with cancer. He was 71. Hunter's most recent position was NASCAR vice president of corporate communications, but he was a kind of guy who was hard to box in with one title.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Given his stature and standing in NASCAR, it seems odd that Jeff Gordon could be second in the Nextel Cup standings, just six points out of the lead, but a bit ignored by fans and media. The attention this fall has been on Kasey Kahne, the pole-sitter for today's Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway, as he struggled to get a berth in the championship-deciding Chase for the Nextel Cup despite leading the series in race victories with five. And there's been lots of focus on the resurgent Richard Childress Racing team, with drivers Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burton, the current points leader, both in the top five in points after missing the first two Chases.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Kasey Kahne, who turns 26 today, has teetered on the brink of NASCAR stardom for two years. Yesterday might have marked his breakthrough. Kahne out-dueled one of his mentors, Tony Stewart, to take the lead with 27 laps left in the Samsung/Radio Shack 500. After that he was never challenged and sprinted away to a whopping 5.2-second margin of victory over Matt Kenseth at Texas Motor Speedway. It was Kahne's second win in the past four races. The other was three weeks ago at another 1.5-mile track, Atlanta Motor Speedway.

RICHMOND, Va. - Kasey Kahne hasn't always had good results at Richmond International Raceway, but he made up for a lot of that yesterday. Kahne, who at 25 and in his second full season on the NASCAR Nextel Cup tour, went out to qualify twice on the three-quarters-of-a-mile track and came back with two No. 1 starting positions. First, he won the pole for last night's Funai 250 Busch race with a run of 128.977 in his No. 79 Dodge. Then, he returned to the track in his No. 9 Nextel Cup Dodge and ran 129.964 to capture the pole for tonight's Chevy American Revolution 400. The Nextel Cup pole was the second consecutive pole for Kahne, who also won it at Darlington, S.C., last weekend.
