Kahne to drive in Truck Series at Pocono
NASCAR star Kasey Kahne will make his first start in the Truck Series in six years when he drives the No. 18 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports at Pocono on July 31.
Kahne is undefeated in two career Truck starts, both of them victories in the 2004 season when he won at Darlington and Homestead. Kahne has led 149 of a possible 284 laps in his two truck starts.
Kyle Busch, who occasionally runs in the Truck series, will be driving in the Nationwide Series race at Iowa the same day for Joe Gibbs Racing.
Kahne, who drives the No. 9 Ford in the Cup Series for Richard Petty Motorsports, said he's impressed with Busch's truck organization, which is in its first year.
Kahne has 13 career Cup starts at Pocono, with one win and five top-10 finishes.
