Kasey Kahne, driver of the No. 9 Budweiser Ford Fusion, had the fastest speed in the first practice session today and was fourth in Happy Hour. Kahne spoke about how his Fusion ran today and what he expects tomorrow night.

"We have a good car that's pretty fast. We worked on it pretty well and I'm looking forward to tomorrow night. I think we've got a good shot to move up, especially after screwing up in qualifying."

WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT? "We just went a little too far with a couple of adjustments and I should have known better. We just made a mistake and it cost us about 25 spots."

SO IS YOUR BIGGEST CONCERN THE START OF THE RACE AND TRYING TO GET TO THE FRONT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE? "You have to take your time. These cars are so difficult in traffic that you have to be careful how much you do when you're way back there if you're gonna go forward because it will be a lot different when you get up front. We've got to take our time and make sure we do it right, and hopefully we'll get into that top 10 and then we can race."
