Kahne and Driving for the 2013 Nationwide Series Season

JR Motorsports will provide rides for Kasey Kahne and {Brad Sweet} for the upcoming Nationwide Series season this year. Great Clips will push its sponsorship from Turner Motorsports to JRM to support the Nationwide Series endeavor. Clips recently signed a support for three Sprint Cup races for Kahne’s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet this year. Kahne ran 15 races for Turner Motorsports in the No. 38 Great Clips Chevrolet in 2012. His eminent finish was second at Bristol in March 2012. In the 191 NNS starts, the 32-year-old racer has managed to top seven victories.

In 2012, Kahne reigned fourth in the Sprint Cup standings in his first season with the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports team. His victories in many races meant Kahne became known as one of the most reliable racers in the NASCAR competition. Recently, Kahne was invited to deliver a good sportsmanship talk at the Victory Lane Players Club chalet in Miami, as part of a fund raising event. He mentioned his love for poker during his speech; saying that the sport helped him with his racing strategies. Poker, apparently, is a favorite of many well known athletes and racers, including the famous driver Stirling Moss.

Meanwhile, Kahne will be working out the season’s driving duties with Sweet, who will turn 27 on January 19. Sweet has been included in two top 10s in 18 races, including a career-high sixth-place finish at {California Speedway} last March. Sweet also raced a limited Truck schedule for Turner Motorsports.
