There was no bigger clue than Earnhardt’s own demeanor in the past couple years.
Those who know him best said he’s never been happier or more content.
The Earnhardts were tracking their ancestry, with brother and sister knowing all along there was bigger surprise in the works.“I told her about this trip and we talked about it for two or three years and had done a ton of work on the genealogy stuff to understand what we were doing and making sure we were doing the right thing and going the right places,” Earnhardt said. You have to get married first and find that person that you want to spend the rest of your life with.
The 34-year-old interior designer married her college sweetheart Tommy Cook in 2008, but they separated that very year.
The couple joined his sister, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, her husband L. Miller and JR Motorsports information technology manager Martin Friedrich on a trip to Germany during an open weekend last month. Now he goes to friends’ birthdays and friends’ baby showers.”He won four races and finished eighth in the championship a year ago, and he has one victory — a tearful win May 3 at Talladega Superspeedway — and is fifth in the standings heading into Sunday night’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.“I think the greatest accomplishment in life is to be able to raise a child,” he said. I have felt that way for a long time, but it’s just a timing thing.Kasey Kahne Foundation OFFICIAL TEAM/DRIVER LINKS Hendrick Motorsports Kasey Kahne Kasey Kahne Foundation Kasey Kahne Store PRIMARY SPONSORS LINKS Farmers Insurance (12 races)(2017/ends) Farmers Racing Great Clips (10 races)(2018) Lift Master (3 races)(2017) Uni First (2 races in 16&17; 3 each year thru 2023) Mountain Dew (1 race)(2018) ASSOCIATE SPONSORS LINKS Valvoline Team Valvoline SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS Team Hendrick - Twitter Hendrick Motorsports - Facebook Hendrick Motorsports - You Tube Kasey Kahne - Twitter Kasey Kahne - Facebook Kasey Kahne - Instagram Farmers Insurance Racing - Twitter Farmers Insurance Racing - Facebook Farmers Insurance Racing - Instagram STATISTICS Kasey Kahne - ESPN Kasey Kahne - Racing MORE INFO 2017 #5 Paint Scheme page 2016 #5 Paint Scheme page 2015 #5 Paint Scheme page Paint Scheme Gallery Driver Appearances Team Address/Contact Farmers Insurance [12 1 races] is scheduled to be the primary sponsor at these 2017 races: Daytona, Can-Am Duels - 2/23 Daytona - 2/26 Atlanta - 3/5 Auto Club 3/26 Texas - 4/9 Kansas - 5/13 Pocono - 6/11 Michigan - 6/18 New Hampshire - 7/16 Dover - 10/1 Talladega - 10/15 Phoenix - 11/12 TBAGreat Clips [10 races] is scheduled to be the primary sponsor at these 2017 races: Phoenix - 3/19 Martinsville - 4/2 Bristol - 4/19 Dover - 6/4 Pocono - 7/30, Shark Week Darlington - 9/3 Richmond - 9/9 Chicago - 9/17 Texas - 11/5 Homestead - 11/19No sponsor is scheduled yet to be the primary sponsor for these 2017 races: Indianapolis - 7/23 Watkins Glen - 8/6 Bristol - 8/19 New Hampshire - 9/24 Charlotte - 10/7 Kansas - 10/22 Martinsville - 10/29Rated Red [3 races] is scheduled to be the sponsor for these races in 2017: Watkins Glen - 8/6 Bristol - 8/19 Charlotte - 10/8Drivers who have won with the #5 at Hendrick Motorsports [1984-current]: Terry Labonte 12 (1996 champ) Geoff Bodine, 7 Kasey Kahne, 5 Martin Martin, 5 Ricky Rudd, 4 Kyle Busch, 4 37 wins for the #5 under Hendrick Motorsports ownership and 7 by other drivers with different owners for 44 wins by the car #5.Wins by other drivers with other drivers running the #5.Additional details of the multi-year partnerships will be announced at a later date.[More](8-9-2017)Kahne released from Hendrick Motorsports: Hendrick Motorsports and Kasey Kahne will end their six-year run together following the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series season. 5 Chevrolet SS at Bristol Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.The driver has been released from the final year of his contract, allowing him to immediately pursue opportunities for 2018.[More](8-7-2017)Rated Red debuts on Kahne's #5 at Watkins Glen: This weekend at Watkins Glen, Kasey Kahne will pilot the No. The Hendrick Motorsports docuseries "Road to Race Day" can be seen on Complex Networks' Rated Red available on go90.[More](8-1-2017)Kasey Kahne snatches improbable victory at the Brickyard: In semi-darkness, as the sun set behind the frontstretch grandstand at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Kasey Kahne did all he could to dispel the shadow overhanging his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and his racing career.
