Kahne Looking To Get Back On Track

January 23, 2008

Concord, N.C. (WVLT) -- What goes up, must come down.

After being the winningest driver in 2006, things came crashing down in 2007 for Kasey Kahne. The Gillett Evernham driver didn't win a race last season. He ended up finishing 19th in the final Cup standings.

Kahne will still drive the #9 Dodge Charger, but he's no longer sponsored by Dodge Dealers. Kahne now carries the Budweiser sponsorship, which is perhaps the most recognizable sponsor in all of motorsports.

Tuesday afternoon in Concord, North Carolina, Kahne talked to Sports Overtime's Daryl Hobby about his new sponsor (one that was on the hood of Dale Earnhardt Jr's car last year), the upcoming season, and what it's gonna take to get back on track.
