Kasey Kahne: All Good At Red Bull Racing

Kasey Kahne is off to a good start this season – his lone campaign with Red Bull Racing before he moves to Hendrick Motorsports – and sits 11th in the Sprint Cup Series point standings entering Martinsville.

With three top-10 finishes in the last four races, Kahne said he and crew chief Kenny Francis are happy at Red Bull but still working to get a feel for the cars.

"They're a little different, so it's taken some time...to get them perfected," Kahne said. "I think we're getting closer. I don't feel like we've run that well yet, as far as the car and myself and how it's went throughout the whole race."

Everything else has been good, he said. Kahne enjoys the "attitude and excitement" at Red Bull and said the fun atmosphere with the team "is back to kind of how it should be."

"I think racing should be fun," he said. "It's a job, but it should be fun, too."

The eighth-year Cup driver said he's optimistic about the rest of the season, particularly since the team has run well despite still feeling "like we're missing it."

"I think we could have a pretty good season," he said.
