Kasey Kahne eager to continue career: 'I love racing'

Kahne's absence from the race vehicle began at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the September 10 running of the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard, a race of which he was the defending victor.

"I just can't control the temperature in my body and my heart rate".

Now it has been confirmed that the 38-year-old Enumclaw, Washington native will not race in any of the next three Cup Series races either as he continues to work with physicians on his health.

Kahne, who announced in August he will stop racing full-time to focus on his son and his sprint auto teams, went to the Darlington infield care center after the 500-mile Labor Day weekend race with symptoms of dehydration. We're still trying to figure that out. "I want to continue racing in some capacity for many years to come in whatever division that may be". It was the first race he had missed since beginning his Cup Series career in the 2004 season-opening Daytona 500. Unlike last season, Kahne failed to qualify for this year's playoffs, as he finished the regular season in a 27th place tie in the championship standings.

Regan Smith will once again serve as the team's substitute driver for all three races in the No. 95 Chevrolet. Last weekend, he revealed that his ongoing health issue played a major part in that decision.

"People want to know why I just don't retire and sit out the rest of the season", he began in a statement on social media Wednesday.

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.

Ten races remain in the 2018 Cup Series season.

Kahne admitted that the fact that temperatures are expected to be roughly 100 degrees at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend anxious him.
