Kasey Kahne is expcted to make a full recovery from Friday morning knee surgery in time for the start of Speedweeks in Daytona next week.

Kahne had an MRI Thursday after experiencing swelling in his left knee. The MRI revealed a torn meniscus, which was treated this morning with a partial medial meniscus removal. Following the common arthroscopic procedure, he was released from an outpatient facility in Charlotte, N.C.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver is expected to practice, qualify and race throughout NASCAR’s season-opening Speedweeks in Daytona. Hendrick has no plans to have a backup driver on standby for the No. 5 Chevrolet.

In April 2011, Kahne had a procedure on his right meniscus and earned a third-place finish the following race at Richmond.
