One think that is unique to the sport of stock car racing , contracts are fluid as the rule books sometimes appears to be.

As a fan of every major sport I can’t recall an instance where a team has signed a player two years ahead of time.

There will be a year in between where the driver won’t have a ride, Kahne will have to sign a year contract for the 2011 season.

This makes no sense to me, specially when Hendrick can pick any driver they want, anytime they want.

I understand they may want to secure a driver for the potential retirement of Mark Martin, but lets be honest Kasey Khane is not Dale Earnhardt Sr , I don’t really understand the move.

What if a better driver becomes available two years from now? Will Hendrick just burn the contract.

A few questions come to mind, will a top team want to hire someone who is just passing through?

What top team wants to invest money on a driver who is looking ahead to driving the best equipment in NASCAR ?

I suspect the answer is not many.

The only way that could happen is if Kasey Kahne shows up on the front steps of Stewart-Hass racing with Budweiser at his side, I’m sure Tony would put out the welcoming mat.

If he can’t get Budweiser in 2011, Kasey will drive for a back forty team or maybe he will rent a team for a year.

Good luck to him, he does wreck his car quite a bit, it can’t all be the car.

Just saying!
