Kasey Kahne headed to Hendrick Motorsports or Stewart-Haas Racing in 2011?

There are conflicting reports right now as to where Kasey Kahne will be racing in 2011.  ESPN has a story up reporting Kahne will be driving for Hendrick while Foxsports says Kahne and the Bud sponsor are heading to Stewart-Haas Racing.  Regardless, Richard Petty Motorsports is on it's way to losing a top driver to a rival organization.

My thoughts are this..

It's no secret that Hendrick Motorsports and Stewart-Haas Racing are two very close teams, with somepeople saying Stewart-Haas is Hendrick Motorsports II.  However, with Hendrick already at the 4 driver limit in there stable thru 2011, it makes more sense that Kahne will be driving with Stewart and Ryan Newman next season with the possibility of Kahne taking over for Mark Martin when Martin's contract expires after 2011.
