ActionMcFarlane is pleased to unveil its second 12-inch scale NASCAR Driver Series action figure. This year, we will release a Kasey Kahne figure, showcasing the 2004 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Rookie of the Year in massively detailed 12-inch scale.

Currently, Kahne pilots the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW car and is one of the rising stars in motorsports.

Born in 1980, Kahne began his career racing Micro-Midgets in his home state of Washington. By 2002, the young driver signed on to race a limited schedule in the NASCAR Busch Series.

He scored his first NASCAR Busch Series win in late 2003 and was chosen to succeed Bill Elliott in the driver’s seat of the No. 9 Dodge for Evernham Motorsports.

In 2004, Kahne earned 13 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes and four poles, clinching the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Rookie of the Year title with an impressive 120-point lead. He had four runner-up finishes for the season.

The 12-inch-tall figure features an incredibly detailed sculpt of Kahne and includes a driver helmet and custom base. Look for this figure in stores in early August.
