Kahne to run special Great Clips scheme at Chicago

This weekend at Chicagoland Speedway, Kasey Kahne will pilot the #5 Great Clips Strong Against Cancer Chevrolet SS. The longtime Hendrick Motorsports partner will also adorn the #5 machine at Texas Motor Speedway and the season-ending finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In last year's race at Chicagoland, Kahne ended the day with a seventh-place finish. His highest finishes at the Joliet, Illinois, track are two third-place results.

Kahne's #5 Chevrolet SS will have a different look this weekend at Chicagoland. Children from Seattle Children's Hospital's Strong Against Cancer initiative, in conjunction with Great Clips, had the opportunity to create a design for Kahne's car this weekend. The three finalists went before a fan vote, with 9-year-old Wyatt, from Washington, receiving the most votes. Wyatt was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in October 2016 after he woke up one morning with an egg-sized lump on his neck. Wyatt, his parents and siblings will all be attending this weekend's event courtesy of Great Clips.
