One of NASCAR's top free agents has signed with a new team

Kasey Kahne has a new home.

Kahne will join Leavine Family Racing the team announced Tuesday.

"I feel like (Leavine has) really made a lot of gains in the past couple years," Kahne told NASCAR.com of his new team. "It's pretty cool to watch, any time you see a small team do what they've done in our sport.

"The opportunity will be a challenge, but also a lot of fun. I enjoy a challenge and I enjoy working with people. The best part about it is us all being a team and trying to improve every single weekend and learning from what we do one week and improving the next. I think that's something we'll be able to do. And I'm really excited about it."

Kahne had said earlier he would also like to race IndyCars, but there's no word in whether his deal will allow it.

Kahne had already acknowledged the Stewart Haas No. 10, just vacated by Danica Patrick, isn't an option, but did mention the No. 95 from Leavine Family Racing  as a possibility.
