Yes, Kahne was physically sick Saturday night, and said he vomited once after his accident 124 laps into the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
He was also sick of his race car, frustrated with running poorly and disgusted that his brakes had failed for the third time this season, and second time in three races. Had he not gotten sick, Kahne said Sunday he might have gotten back in the car after his Richard Petty Motorsports crew repaired some of the damage.
By that time, though, he was 100 laps down. He was queasy, annoyed with the brakes and angry at criticism from an unnamed RPM employee.
So he said no, he couldn't continue, and the team grabbed J.J. Yeley to finish the race.
