Kasey Kahne discusses racing at Michigan and Adam Sandler:

What kind of racing can we expect at Michigan? "There is so much racing room out there that you have to really work on your setup. I feel like that is one of the tracks where it is really critical to have a good aero and engine package. The racing at Michigan can be great at times. It also can be a race where cars run away and get strung out and there's not a lot of passing going on. As far as the width of the racetrack and racing groove, there's plenty of room. If you have a good car, you'll be able to pass and it will be a fun race."

What are your thoughts on having Adam Sandler's new movie "Grown Ups" featured on the No. 9 Budweiser Ford this weekend? "It has been nice to have a couple of Adam's movies on our cars in the past. I'm looking forward to having 'Grown Ups' on the Budweiser Ford this weekend in Michigan. Adam is always great to have around."
