Rules of Evidence regarding punitive damages

If a defendant to a case was a drunk driver, and he stipulates to liability AND stipulates to punitives after the amended petition was filed (asking for punitives), is he (defendant) allowed to keep all information regarding the intoxication away from the jury since he stipulates to punitives? In Kansas the jury decides if there will be punitives, and the judge decides the amount. I can find no caselaw or evidentiary decisions on this point. Please help!!
