Enumclaw's Kasey Kahne could have taken the weekend off like most of his fellow NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers will. Instead, Kahne will try for his second Camping World Truck Series victory at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, S.C.
“I mean, the season just started, and we just came off a long break,” he said. “I’m not ready to stop racing, and this is just good timing.”
Kahne, who’ll drive today in the Too Tough To Tame 200, won at Darlington in his truck debut in 2004. He said racing at Darlington this weekend might help him when the Sprint Cup series visits the track in May.
“I don’t think it can hurt for us to learn a little more,” Kahne said. “Getting a few more laps here is always a good thing.”
