KASEY KAHNE QUOTES

"There are three or four NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races that every driver wants to win and the Coca-Cola 600 at Lowe's Motor Speedway is definitely one of those events. The No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger performed great to win the 600 in May. We led just over 150 laps. In the 2004 fall race, our No. 9 Dodge was as good or maybe even better. It led more than 200 laps. The night was spoiled when a tire problem sent the racecar into the outside retaining wall and out of the race. We've led all five races I've competed in at Lowe's.

"After a disappointing start in The Chase, we had a good effort last week at Talladega. That gives us momentum going into the night race at Lowe's where the No. 9 Dodge Charger will carry a special Mopar Blue Camouflage paint scheme. We'll race hard for wins these next six races; that's the way we can impact the point standings."

KASEY KAHNE FAST FACTS

* Kahne has led one or more laps in all five races he has competed in at Lowe's Motor Speedway. He has led a total of 416 laps at the Charlotte track.

* Kahne has one win at Lowe's Motor Speedway (2006 Coke 600). He has started in the top-10 in three of his five starts at Lowe's and has completed 96 percent of laps attempted there.

* Kahne will be running a special paint scheme this weekend. His No. 9 Dodge Charger will be painted with Blue Camouflage and Mopar's signature "M" on the hood.

* Kahne is ninth in the Chase for the Championship standings after his second place finish at Talladega.
