MOORESVILLE, N.C. – James McFadden will return to the Kasey Kahne Racing No. 9 sprint car for more than 50 races in 2020.

The Alice Springs, Australia native will open the season at Volusia Speedway Park Feb. 5-9, competing in both Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events.

The KKR No. 9 team will run a majority of their events with the World of Outlaws, as well as attend a number of bigger races throughout the summer.

Winning seven races and the coveted Knoxville 360 Nationals in 2019, McFadden looks to continue his success while driving for team owner Kasey Kahne.

“I am excited to be teaming up with KKR and the 9 team again,” McFadden said. “Last season was a lot of fun and we had some great results. I’m looking forward to building on the relationships and car speed from our first season, and our goal is for some stronger performances next year.”

“We had a blast racing with James in 2019 and can’t wait to race with him again this year,” stated team owner Kahne. “James has a lot of talent and experience in a sprint car and can win a lot of races for KKR.”
