KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Budweiser Dodge Charger)

YOU'RE EIGHTH TODAY IN THE FINAL PRACTICE, HOW IS YOUR CAR IN RACE TRIM? "It's pretty good. We kept working on the balance of the car and I think we're close. It's pretty good in Turns 1 and 2 and a little bit loose in (Turns) 3 and 4. Everything felt good. The engine felt good. We ran pretty decent times (31.389), we just need to keep working on our Dodge a bit more and try to get a top-10 here tomorrow."

CONDITIONS ARE GOING TO BE A LOT COOLER HERE TOMORROW NIGHT, HOW WILL THAT CHANGE THE BALANCE OF THE CAR AS COMPARED TO PRACTICE TODAY? "A lot. It's going to be a much different track than what we practiced on today. It was really hot and humid out there today. Tomorrow night will be much different. The cars will get more grip and if you're handling good today, you'll handle better tomorrow night.

KENNY (FRANCIS, TEAM DIRECTOR)

TALK ABOUT HOW QUICKLY LAP TIMES FALL OFF HERE, DOES THAT CHANGE YOUR DRIVING STYLE HERE? "You really have to think about taking care of you tires here because you can lose them really quick into a run. You can't overdrive in the corners when your tires feel really good. You have to take your time with them. Some people will go faster early in the run, others will go a little slower and make up later. It just really depends on how your car is balanced."
