2018 Musical #NASCAR Chairs Continues

2018 Musical #NASCAR Chairs Continues
Kasey Kahne will pilot the No. 95 Chevrolet Camaro  for Leavine Family Racing (LFR) #NASCAR

Kasey Kahne will pilot the No. 95 Chevrolet Camaro for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season for Leavine Family Racing (LFR). Kahne, who has driven for Hendrick Motorsports since 2012, has signed on to be LFR's primary driver for the 2018 season.

“I feel like (Leavine has) really made a lot of gains in the past couple years,” Kahne told of his new team. “It’s pretty cool to watch, any time you see a small team do what they’ve done in our sport.

“The opportunity will be a challenge, but also a lot of fun. I enjoy a challenge and I enjoy working with people. The best part about it is us all being a team and trying to improve every single weekend and learning from what we do one week and improving the next. I think that’s something we’ll be able to do. And I’m really excited about it.”

Michael McDowell joins Front Row Motorsports. #NASCAR
Front Row Motorsports will step up its two-car Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series program in 2018 with an elevated partnership with Ford Performance and ten-year #MENCS Veteran Michael McDowell.

McDowell joins the team after four years with Leavine Family Racing. The 32-year-old Phoenix, Ariz., native raced a Front Row Motorsports entry once previously in his Cup series career, at Watkins Glen International in 2013. The former open-wheel racer was the 2004 Star Mazda Series champion and 2007 ARCA Re/MAX Series Rookie of the Year. He earned a Cup career-best fourth-place finish at Daytona International Speedway in July of this year.

“Since I first drove for Bob at Watkins Glen, we’ve kept in touch and have felt like there might be an opportunity to work together again, and the timing worked out perfectly,” McDowell said. “It’s been a while since I’ve had a teammate, so I’m really looking forward to working with David, whom I’ve become pretty good friends with over the years. As a team now, we go into the season knowing we have five or six races that put us in position to get a win and earn a spot in the playoffs.”

Landon Cassill is without a #NASCAR Ride for 2018.
That leaves Landon Cassill in the “free agent” category with the likes of Danica Patrick, Aric Almirola and Matt Kenseth.

However it is early yet in the 2017 silly season.
