On Thursday, Oct. 7, Kahne will take part in the Stater Bros. Racefest at Auto Club Speedway. The event is scheduled to run from 5 -- 9 p.m. and a number of NASCAR drivers will be on hand to sign autographs starting at 6 p.m.

Kasey Kahne discusses racing at Auto Club Speedway:

What are your thoughts on Auto Club Speedway? "I like California. We've usually been pretty strong on that type of track and we've had some success there before. It's definitely good to be going to a track you feel you can run well at."

Do you compare the racing at Auto Club Speedway to any other tracks? "It's hard to compare tracks to each other. I think California was built to be like Michigan but they're pretty different tracks. California doesn't have a lot of banking but it is a pretty fast track. I think, like every track, getting the car to handle in the corners is the biggest thing. It's a two-mile track and the front and back stretches are pretty long."

How physically demanding is racing at Auto Club Speedway? "I don't think that it's too bad. There's a lot of time at this track where you can relax going down the straightaway a little bit. The corners are so long that you can have a loose car and work through the corners a lot which can wear you out and get your heart rate up. It's not too bad though, I wouldn't say that it's one of the more physically demanding tracks."
