Kahne suffered from dehydration following the Southern 500 and was taken to the infield care center following the race.

NASCAR's Kasey Kahne headed to his Twitter account to open up about the recent struggles that he has been experiencing as of late, and make no mistake about it, he's not ready to give up.

Kahne's absence from the race vehicle began at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the September 10 running of the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard, a race of which he was the defending victor. But while he searches for a solution, Kahne insisted on Wednesday that his racing career is not over - and will continue in some form.

Here is what the 18-time Cup Series race victor had to say about the matter, according to NBC Sports Network. We're still trying to figure that out. The plan of having Smith in the No. 95 for the next three races has him driving the auto at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on September 16, Richmond Raceway in Virginia on September 22, and September 30 on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval in North Carolina.

The three races that Kahne is set to miss are this Sunday's South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada, next Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia and the Bank of America Roval 400 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval in Concord, North Carolina three Sundays from now. The issue is something the driver who is retiring from full-time racing at the end of 2018 has dealt with for years and was a factor in his decision to step away from the sport.

Kahne announced in August his retirement from full-time NASCAR competition, effective at the end of 2018.

The Brickyard 400 was Regan Smith's first Cup Series race since filling in for an injured Aric Almirola at Richard Petty Motorsports past year. He won last year's Brickyard 400 in his sixth and final season driving for Hendrick Motorsports to secure a playoff berth.
