Leavine Family Racing has a new driver in Kasey Kahne for the 2018 season. On Tuesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the team revealed a new look as well.
Procore, a widely used construction project management software, and Leavine have extended their partnership to a multi-race, multi-year deal that includes the 2018 Daytona 500.
“I was just telling Bob (Leavine) … things are going better than expected at this point for me,” Kasey Kahne said after the unveiling. “The group of people that I’m working with, the way they have worked with me. What I see out of them and the process of getting the new Camaro ready, working with RCR … I just feel like it’s better than I expected when I signed up, and I thought it was going to be pretty darn good when I signed up.”
Part of that deal includes a new paint scheme, unveiled Tuesday, and a new stylized number to reinforce the fresh start for the team with the veteran Kahne at the helm.

“Procore is excited to continue our partnership with Leavine Family Racing and support the 95 car throughout the 2018 season,” said Mark Lyons, vice president of segment marketing, Procore. “We value the connection that Leavine Family Racing has to the construction industry, and know that this connection also extends to many of the passionate fans that come out to the track and tune in to each NASCAR race.”
Procore associates were unable to attend the event due to their California offices impacted by area wildfires.
Leavine Family Racing announced in September that the 18-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series winner Kahne would join the team following a five-year stint with Hendrick Motorsports.
“I think a fresh start is nice,” Kahne said. “… It’s a fresh start all the way around. It’s not just a different owner, or different manufacturer. I think it’ll be really good for me. It’s probably the first time maybe ever that it’s … fresh. Completely new.”
