Kahne Story Continues To Unfold
Both SPEED and ESPN2 are on the air today with coverage today from Martinsville. The single thread that runs through the day will no doubt be the fallout from the release of Kasey Kahne by RPM and the apparent unraveling of that organization.
Both "NASCAR Now" and "Race Hub" addressed this issue on Thursday. Ryan McGee offered the details in an update from Charlotte, while Bob Dillner reported on-scene from Red Bull Racing in Mooresville, NC.
With the Chase again struggling for storylines and TV ratings, this new drama could be just what the sport needs as new pieces of the puzzle continue to be added. Kahne is scheduled to speak with media on Friday morning in Martinsvile. Sirius 128 will stream that live while SPEED and ESPN will both update that session in later live coverage.
This entire scenario puts brand new team combinations on the track with plenty of hard feelings and tough words destined to follow. It may be a very interesting Friday at Martinsville for what happens off the track.
