Darlington: Kasey Kahne preview

KASEY KAHNE QUOTES: Darlington is one of the toughest tracks we race on and we're going there with the COT which, like most teams, we're still trying to figure out. Despite the success we've had there in the past, this will be a new experience.

KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

Darlington is one of the toughest tracks we race on and we're going there with the COT which, like most teams, we're still trying to figure out. Despite the success we've had there in the past, this will be a new experience. We're close on getting the handling issues resolved with the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Avenger. I like the challenge the track presents and it is a challenge even with a racecar that's working well. With the issues teams are having with the COT, it will be an even bigger challenge to stay out of trouble. Getting away with just a Darlington stripe will probably signal a good day.

"It's the Dodge Avenger 500. We would like nothing better than to win the event for Dodge and all the Dodge Dealers."
