    Happens every now and then when you have an actual talent behind the wheel.

    He spent like 5 years with the most successful team of the modern era. It's early, but so far, Michael McDowell was more productive in the 95 ride than Kasey Kahne.

    He was contending up until a point. That wreck at Pocono a few years back really seemed to shake him up, and he never was the same. You lose any bit of your edge in something like NASCAR, you might as well hang em up. Happened to Tony STewart too his last few years, and Kasey Kahne at no point in time was 1/8th the talent Tony STewart was.

    A few different things happened with Tony. That back injury didn't do him any favors and that whole incident with Ward I think mentally just drained a lot of love of the sport there for a while. Also, I think what really did him in was getting rid of Grubb back after he won the Cup in 2011. They had just found some chemistry and started to click and then he got rid of him.

    I can admit Kasey hasn't been nearly as successful as Stewart, just in NASCAR alone:

    Kahne 18 wins, 176 top tens, 27 poles, no titles (15 years, 500 races)
    Tony 49 wins, 308 top tens, 15 poles, 2 titles (18 years, 600 races)

    But he has also run with shit equipment for most of his career, including Mopar's failed return

    His first years there, Evernham had some real good equipment out there. Not good enough for the Casey Atwoods and Elliott Sadlers of the world to be successful, but Bill Elliott went from not winning anything in nearly a decade to winning multiple races a season again in the same ride, and real long in the tooth at the time too.

    Then those years at Hendrick too.

    Look at the equipment Harvick had to drive for 14 years, and then look what happened when he moved to a real team when he was pushing 40.

    But Harvick managed 23 wins in worse equipment than Kasey Kahne ever had during those 14 years.

    So you agree that good drivers do better when they have better equipment

    Yeah, and Kahne was driving for Evernham when they were a good team and he drove for Hendrick.

    Harvick spent 14 years driving for RCR, a team that only he and Dale Sr have won more than a handful of races with, a team that has won a total of 3 races in the 4+ years since he left for SHR, 2 by fuel mileage and one at a plate track.
