KASEY KAHNE QUOTES

"I'm definitely looking forward to the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. We did a tire test there and then participated in the NASCAR-scheduled test a couple of weeks ago. I think we have a good car for the race. The No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger we will race is a new car. We were eighth or ninth fastest in testing, so I think we have things sorted out. We had a good run at Indy last year, finishing second to Tony (Stewart).

"I know what the win meant to him. Having lived in Indy earlier in my career, I know what it would mean to me to win at the Brickyard. There are two races every driver wants to win -- the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard and the Daytona 500."

Kahne has finished in the top-five in both his starts at Indy. His best finish of second came in last year's Brickyard 400.

Kahne has completed 321 of the 321 laps attempted at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, giving him a 100 percent lap-completion rate at the historic 2.5-mile track.
