Kasey Kahne will continue to drive for Hendrick Motorsports through the 2018 Sprint Cup season, signing a three-year contract extension on Thursday.
Kahne's deal was set to expire at the conclusion of the 2015 campaign.
Kahne finished 15th in the 2014 Sprint Cup standings, his worst mark since placing 20th in 2010. He won one race and had three top-five results this year.
The 34-year-old Washington native's best season was 2012, when he finished fourth in his first full year with Hendrick.
Kahne has five Sprint Cup wins and 26 top-five finishes since 2012. He owns 17 Sprint Cup race victories since breaking into NASCAR's top division in 2004.
