Kasey Kahne eager to continue career in motorsport

Kahne determined to rebound from health issue			Image by Cantrell  LAT

The issue resulted in extreme heat exhaustion during the last race he ran, the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on September 2.

NASCAR's Kasey Kahne headed to his Twitter account to open up about the recent struggles that he has been experiencing as of late, and make no mistake about it, he's not ready to give up.

Smith finished 20th in Monday's race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was the first race he had missed since beginning his Cup Series career in the 2004 season-opening Daytona 500.

In a teleconference last week, Kahne said he had been dealing with heat exhaustion issues at the end of the NASCAR races since last season but the Darlington race "was the worst that it's been".

Ten races remain in the 2018 Cup Series season. "Once it gets to that point, there's nothing I can do until I get out of the auto".

Kahne also recently revealed that he will be retiring from full-time Cup Series competition following the conclusion of the 2018 season, which is his 15th season as a full-time driver in the sport, and he admitted that this health issue played a role in his decision to retire and even turn down a potential ride at Stewart-Haas Racing before doing so.

Temperatures are expected to be near 100 degrees at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Smith's second start of the season. He was ruled out of the Brickyard 400 on doctors' recommendations and will miss the next three races at Las Vegas, Richmond and Charlotte.

Kahne now is in 28th place in the NASCAR Cup standings.

Kasey Kahne will skip the next three NASCAR races, with Regan Smith driving in his place.
