Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne saw his day end early and badly at Pocono Raceway Sunday. After starting 16th, Kahne barely had time to settle in when on lap 3 his Chevy got loose exiting turn 3. The car slid sideways across the track and crashed hard on the driver’s side into the pit wall at the pit stall for AJ Allmendinger.
“I just got loose.,” Kahne said.” It was late exit and a lot later than I would have expected. That’s why I ended up so far down pit road and that was crazy because I have never ended up there. I tried saving it to try and avoid running into the wall, pit wall then ended up hitting the one on the left and not the one on the right.”
The contact sent crewmembers helmets sitting on the pit wall flying. It also sent crewmembers and fans scrambling to get out of the way. MORE>>>
