Kasey Kahne discusses racing at NHMS and getting into contention for the Chase:

What are your thoughts on running at NHMS this weekend? "We really haven't had too many cars capable of winning at Loudon, but we've usually been good enough to run in the top 10 or top 15. It's a track that has very long corners so it's going to be important that we get our Budweiser Ford to roll really well through the center of the corners. The straightaways are long for just a one-mile track and the turns are extremely flat, so having good brakes that will last you to the end is important if you want to run well."

Are you even looking at where in you are in terms of the Chase or are you and the team concentrating on wins and letting the points take care of themselves? "That's really all we want is to win races and make the Chase. It's all you think about when it comes to NASCAR as a driver, so that's still what we're shooting for. We need to throw down some big races for awhile if we want to make it, but it's definitely possible."

Fans can meet Kahne at Shaw's in Concord, N.H., on Thursday, June 24 from 4 -- 6 p.m. The store is located at 246 Loudon Road. The appearance will include an autograph session with Kahne and the store will hand out a limited number of wristbands in advance.
