Kahne Running Throwback Scheme in 2018 All-Star Race

No. 95 Kasey Kahne Dumont Jets All-Star Paint SchemeThe No. 95 Leavine Family Racing NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series team and its sponsor, Dumont Group will debut a special throwback-inspired paint scheme this weekend for Kasey Kahne’s No. 95 Camaro ZL1 for the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

This weekend’s paint scheme likely brings back memories for Kahne fans who helped vote him into the 2008 All-Star Race thanks to the Sprint Fan Vote a decade ago. Kahne is the only driver who has won the fan vote for the event and then gone on to win the million-dollar payout in the non-points event.

“It was so awesome that the fans voted us into the All-Star race back in 2008,” said Kahne.

Votes and Performance

Kahne said it was very special to get voted into the All-Star race 10 years ago, and then have a good enough car to win.

“It really was special to get voted into the race, and then to have a great car to be able to drive our way to the front in order to make strategy calls that put us in position to win,” he said.

“Our paint scheme for this weekend looks so similar to that scheme we ran in 2008’s event, that it’s been cool to see it in the shop as the guys have been getting ready for this weekend,” he said.

Kahne noted he is forward to racing it this weekend.

“…hopefully, the paint scheme can bring us the same result we had ten years ago.”

Primary Sponsor

Dumont Jets will be featured as a primary sponsor for the first time in NASCAR aboard the No. 95 Leavine Family Racing Chevrolet. The sponsor is a full-service aircraft charter, sales, maintenance, and parts organization. Dumont Jets has been an associate partner branding for the season aboard the No. 95 and will also have a primary paint scheme at Dover in October.

Kevin Wargo, Director of Dumont Jets and Dumont Group said they are excited for their first primary paint scheme in the MENCS this weekend.

“We know that fans will enjoy the throw-back scheme as much as we do,” Wargo said.

“We have enjoyed working with Leavine Family Racing and Kasey Kahne, and are looking forward to continuing the partnership on and off the track.”
