KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"The Budweiser Shootout is exciting and fun. It has nothing to do with points, so there's none of that pressure. We will go out, have fun and try to win a restrictor plate race. Everybody will be racing for the win. I'm very happy to be in the Shootout on Saturday night and not have to wait until the Daytona 500 to race.

"The Shootout also provides an opportunity under race conditions to find out how much we've improved the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger since the test in January."

QUICK FACTS:

* Kasey Kahne is making his third straight Budweiser Shootout appearance. His best start was a fifth in 2006. His best finish of ninth came in 2005.

* In 2006, Kahne was involved in a seven-car mishap on lap 15 of the Shootout and finished 18th.
