Kasey Kahne Racing announced Wednesday that the former Cup Series driver will miss “several” upcoming sprint car races due to an undisclosed injury suffered in a race at Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania on March 29.
Kahne will be replaced by Australian driver James McFadden in his No. 9 sprint beginning at the World of Outlaws Patriot Nationals in Charlotte May 24-25.
The team said Kahne, who was set to compete in more than 50 races this year, will continue to be hands-on with the car and travel with the team.
Kahne’s return will be announced at a later date.
