Having made a name for itself in dirt track racing, Kyle Larson’s sprint car series is looking forward to a stellar 2024 season with some pretty exciting names in the lineup. Among those names is that of former Cup Series driver Kasey Kahne. The veteran was said to have a bright prospect in NASCAR’s top-tier and many people believe the 43-year-old never lived up to his full potential. That being said, all is not lost as the 43-year-old made an indelible mark in the World of Outlaws, winning over 200 races and six championships as a team owner.

“We’re getting ready for another race season around here and I just wanted to let you know that we’re going to High Limit Racing in 2024. We’re excited about it. They’ve put together a great schedule that really makes a lot of sense for me. Do a lot of racing yet still have some weekends to do other things and that should be pretty cool. We’re gonna have 2 cars out there, myself and Brad Sweet and yeah, just excited for it,” he said in the video.

For Kahne, a lot of the tracks will be familiar. He won midgets and sprint races in the past, in venues like Atomic Speedway, Eagle Raceway, Eldora Speedway, Grays Harbor Raceway, Lernerville Speedway, and Skagit Speedway. He will not be a stranger to the High Limit Racing series either. The former Cup Series driver has driven in the competition in the past and earned the highest finish of P6 at the Grandview Speedway earlier this year.

The former Hendrick Motorsports star will be making his debut in the series starting February 12-13 at the East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa. 

While High Limit Racing is a sprint car series, the 43-year-old revealed earlier this year that he had given some thought about returning to stock-car racing. “I think it would be great to run a stock car again,” Kahne had said as per Auto Week.

“I have done a lot since then and I think my body is in a much better place. It needed a rest. I needed to understand the things that I’ve gone through. It was a long process. I feel the way I should feel and that’s nice,” he added.

Drivers these days need to be more like Denny Hamlin and Bubba Wallace. Well, now you know who my favorites are. For me, it all began with my interest in F1, but I was just tired of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen showing unparalleled dominance.
