NASCAR At Martinsville: Kasey Kahne Has a New Spotter

As evidenced by him sitting 27th in the Sprint Cup standings and not having finished better than 14th, it has no doubt been a trying year for Kasey Kahne in his first season driving for Hendrick Motorsports.

In effort to jumpstart his season, Kahne will be working with a new spotter in Sunday's Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Out is old spotter Kole Kahne – Kasey's cousin – and in his place is Shannon McGlamery, the former spotter for Kahne's teammate Jeff Gordon.

This is a decision that weighed heavily on Kasey Kahne's mind since an incident two weeks ago at Bristol, when miscommunication between driver and spotter triggered a multi-car incident which saw Kahne suffer heavy damage and end the day in 37th place.

"I would say it is something I wanted to do different," Kahne said Friday at Martinsville. "I was a little unpleased after California. We are just looking at something for a couple of weeks. We are going to see after Texas. We are going to sit down and decide if that is the direction I want to go or if I feel comfortable with Kole doing it again or what.

"I'm going to wait. I'm going to do two weeks with someone else and then decide after Texas what I want to do."

As is the case when family is involved, this wasn't an easy call to make. But after a sour start to the year, every point is critical if Kahne is to work his way back into Chase contention.

"I've worked with family since I started," Kahne said. "We have had ups and downs over the years, and sometimes maybe things don't seem right at first, but they've always seemed to work out. Everything has always seemed to work out for us.

"We (will) figure out what is best for all of us and go on and make it work."
