2018 Fantasy Racing Outlook

After six seasons of racing in the No. 5 Chevrolet at Hendrick Motorsports, Kahne found himself heading into the free agent driver pool at the end of last season. Steady performance erosion over the last few seasons has seen the veteran driver go from winning races and earning Chase berths, to struggling to be competitive on a weekly basis. Although Kahne pulled out a Hail Mary victory at the Brickyard last season, he struggled to post a career-low six Top-10 finishes. His average finish for the campaign ballooned to a 10-season low of 19.4, and his average qualifying position of 17.9 was a career worst mark. He will now pilot the No. 95 Chevrolet of Leavine Family Racing. This small single-car team has worked hard with prior driver, Michael McDowell, to go from part-time to full-time competition in NASCAR's top division. While Kahne is an upgrade over McDowell, his ability to earn Top 10's with this team will be severely challenged. The veteran driver is entering the declining stages of his NASCAR career, and that should be remembered on fantasy racing draft day.
