Kahne has earned two pole awards, six top fives and eight top-10 finishes so far in the 2010 season. He is currently ranked 19th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver point standings.

Kasey Kahne discusses racing at Dover International Speedway:

Dover's concrete surface and the high banking put a lot of emphasis on the front end of the car. How important is having your car handle well right off the hauler? "Dover's one of those places that if you unload (the race car) and you're off, you can get better, but you'll never get to where you want to be. On a race weekend here, your package needs to be close when you start practice or you'll never really get there for some reason."

What's important to having a good finish at Dover? "The key is having a car that can still handle well 30-40 laps into a run and staying out of trouble. Dover is an easy place to get in trouble and once you're in trouble, it's a place that can end your day in a hurry. It's definitely one of the more mentally and physically demanding tracks that we go to."
