An American legend is rising…from the quietest reaches of Western Washington, he has arrived on the stage of the country's largest spectator sport: NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series.
Kasey Kahne's ascent to stardom is a tale of committed family and loyal fans. He is a dirt-track prodigy that took his talent to the highest level; now standing at the summit of a sport which races on passion and hard work as much as it does on mechanics and engineering.
The journey takes Kasey from Washington to Indiana and finally North Carolina. But this is no casual stroll across a continent, it is a high-octane drive to stardom: charging toward his dream…chasing his childhood heroes…while charting his own course. Still, at each stop, the man has been surrounded by loving family and devoted fans. And at each step, the racer has left his mark on the record books.
But this meteoric rise is more than a tale of racing. The spotlight shines on the fun to be had away from NASCAR, even if Kasey is often found back at the dirt-track - tearing it up with fans, family and friends from the big leagues. Through it all, the cool-headed hero wins our hearts with his talent and charm. And thanks to his fans, the warm-hearted humanitarian has found an outlet to give back…to repay the sacrifice many took to help him scale the heights of his chosen profession.
One of sport's most recognizable faces belongs to a down-to-earth guy who just happens to be a racing phenomenon. It's a ride you won’t want to miss, and a journey you’ll never forget. Experience the determination, feel the frenzied loyalty of fans, see the support from family and friends, and taste the glory of victory that mark The Rise of Kahne.
