Voting Home / Kasey Kahne
Nominated for: BEST Pro Athlete
Drivers successfully making the transition from sprint cars to stock cars used to be the exception. While the list of drivers that have found success in sprint cars and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars isn't long, Kasey Kahne is on it. As Kahne embarks in his fifth season of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition, he looks to the 2008 season as being a “new year with new beginnings.” He begins 2008 with a new sponsor and a new car design in a newly titled series. While the No. 9 Budweiser Team is all for ushering in the new, they aim to return to the form that made Kahne NASCAR's Rookie of the Year in 2004 and one of the most promising young drivers in the Cup Series.
