DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Maybe it’s not as dramatic as others who have uttered the phrase, but when it comes to competing in the Chili Bowl midget race next January, Kasey Kahne says he’ll be back.
After running sprint cars last month in Arizona, Kahne skipped the Chili Bowl. Soon after, he was regretting the decision so much that he ordered a midget car and will have it ready in April to compete next year.
“I realized about the second day of not being at Chili Bowl that I was missing it,’’ Kahne said. “Sometimes you have to take a year off to realize that you want to be there again.”
Kahne said he would wait to see how his Cup season goes before deciding it to compete in any non-NASCAR events this year.
