KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"This is a fun race. No points. It is four 20-lap sprint races. It's all-out racing with one goal -- the win. I like that. The No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge team is ready. The crew will go all out on Wednesday night (Nextel Pit Crew Challenge) to get us a good pit selection. They will also play a key role in qualifying and the race because of the mandatory pit stops."

QUICK FACTS

* Kahne is making his fourth consecutive appearance in the Nextel All-Star Challenge.

* He started from the pole in last year's event.

* Kahne won both Nextel Cup points events at Lowe's Motor Speedway in 2006.

* Evernham Motorsports has been represented in the All-Star event every year since Ray Evernham launched the return of Dodge to NASCAR's premier series in 2001. The No. 9 Dodge has been in all six All-Star events.
