Kasey Kahne was scheduled to change teams at the end of the season, anyway. He’s spending a year with the Red Bull team before he drives the Number 5 car for Hendrick Motorsports in 2011. So, he’s already leaving Petty, anyway. So, when he refused to get back into the Number 9 Budweiser Ford after this wreck on Saturday night, he was cut loose.
