By  | 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A person familiar with Kasey Kahne's
plans says the NASCAR driver is in the final stages of completing a
deal to drive for Hendrick Motorsports in 2012.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of
anonymity because portions of Kahne's deal are still being worked

Most notably, it's not clear where Kahne will drive in 2011. HMS
is currently at NASCAR's four-car limit, and Kahne is working out a
deal to succeed Mark Martin in the No. 5 car in 2012.

Richard Petty Motorsports announced Tuesday that Kahne, one of
the top free agents this year, will leave the team at the end of
the season.
