KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"I've qualified well and led laps at Kansas, but I haven't been able to turn it into a good finish. That's what we're looking for this weekend, a good finish. We've had our challenges with the car of tomorrow, but the issues we've had this year with the Dodge Charger were unexpected.

"When you have problems like we've had, the key is remaining patient and working toward small gains each week. We've done that in recent weeks, but that progress was halted at Dover. We ended up in that multi-car accident. We'll be looking to get back on track this weekend in the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger."

QUICK FACTS

* Kahne has led 50 laps at Kansas Speedway.

* With three career starts at Kansas, Kahne has qualified in the top three twice.

* In the past five races, Kahne and the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge team have three top-10 finishes.

* Kahne is in his fourth season with Gillett Evernham Motorsports. He posted a series-high six wins last year and earned a berth in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.
