Is Kasey Kahne Married? Who Is His Wife? Son, Girlfriend
The talented and good-looking race car driver is currently not married. Kasey is, however, dating his long-time girlfriend Samantha Sheets. A little insight into what we know about his beautiful girlfriend shows that she was born on June 27, 1991, as the daughter of parents John and Letitia Sheets. Her parents are residents of Concord, NVC, but are originally from Westville, Indiana. For her education, she attended the University of North Carolina. Samantha also has a younger brother named Colby Sheets.
Like Kasey, her mother, Letitia Sheets, has ties to the world of racing, having served as Director of Diversity and Special Projects at NASCAR for nearly a decade. Ms. Sheets has also been involved in working with the VME-IMG and overseeing administrative and special projects. This followed her positions as National Managing Director at Speedway Motorsport and Director of Business Affairs at IMG.
On October 13, 2015, Samantha and Kasey posted a Twitter message announcing the arrival of their son, Tanner Lee Kahne.
Is Kasey Kahne Gay?
Sometime in mid-2008, a publication appeared in the British sports magazine SportsPro, spreading the rumor that Kasey Kahne was gay. One of the reasons for these insinuations was his handsome, boyish appearance combined with the fact that there were no openly gay drivers at that time.
To take a closer look at Kasey’s background and track record with his partners, he dated Ashley Speegle in 2005 and was also involved with Kristy Labonte. He also dated Britney Hagy in 2006 and then Ashley Miller before meeting Samantha Sheets. Even though dating women cannot be used as the only yardstick for the concrete definition of his sexuality, it would be safe to say at the moment that Kasey Kahne is not gay, but heterosexual.
