KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge)

NOTE: Kahne and Ward Burton tangled coming out of turn two during Friday night's practice session. Kahne, who qualified 31st, will go to a backup Dodge and move to the rear of the field Saturday night to start the Pepsi 400.

"The car didn't feel exactly right, and we probably should have brought it in sooner and worked on it. I was just trying to search for the right lines, but it got loose coming out of the second turn. I'm sorry the 0 car got caught up in it. There wasn't anywhere for him to go. This was a brand new Dodge, but the backup car is a new one, too. I'm sure the team will get it ready for the race. I hope we can get back out and practice some tonight, but it's getting late and the skies don't look that good. Maybe rain would be a good thing."
