Kasey Kahne says he’s not replacing Danica Patrick in the No. 10

First, it was Matt Kenseth acknowledging he’s not replacing Danica Patrick at Stewart-Haas Racing.

Now, Kasey Kahne says it’s not him, either, and dropped a hint about this future in a tweet from Fox Sports:

“I’m pretty sure I know who’s driving that car, and it’s not me,” said Kahne, who then dropped the tantalizing hint that his ride for next year is basically done.

The word about Kenseth broke this morning.

Kenseth himself is looking for a ride after Joe Gibbs Racing didn’t pick up his contract for next year.

Patrick announced on Tuesday, via Facebook, that she wouldn’t return to SHR next season — not a surprise since she didn’t have a sponsor for 2018. Speculation has run rampant that Aric Almirola would end up in the No. 10, now that his main sponsor, Smithfield Foods, moved its sponsorship from Richard Petty Motorsports to SHR.
