RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Kasey Kahne expects to experience some soreness in his surgically repaired knee during Saturday night's race at Richmond International Raceway.
Kahne had surgery April 18 to repair the meniscus in his right knee. He also had surgery on both knees in November, but said Friday he re-injured the right one earlier this season when he slipped while exercising.
Kahne said he knew he needed a second surgery, and waited until NASCAR's break last week to have the procedure.
Kahne goes into Saturday night's race at Richmond ranked 18th in the Sprint Cup Series standings
