KASEY KAHNE (No. 19 Budweiser Dodge Charger)

YOU'VE WON HERE BEFORE ... WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON COMING BACK TO POCONO? "I always like coming up here. We ran pretty well in the first race here. We had to pit for some fuel late in the race and then I spun on the last corner...I think we finished 15th. I think our Budweiser Dodge has been quick. The guys have done a really good job. Kenny Francis (crew chief) is doing an awesome job and I look forward in having another good car this weekend and hopefully make the right decisions throughout the race and have a good shot at a top 10."

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR CHANCES WOULD BE IF THE CHASE STARTED THIS WEEKEND? "I feel that a lot of things can happen in the Chase; obviously, they do each year. I'm real happy with where our team is right now. We've been really consistent. They've been giving me really good race cars each weekend. Our communication has been good. Our pit crew has been awesome. I think they've been as good as anyone on pit road. That kind of stuff you just keep building on and preparing and hopefully, you don't make any mistakes and get into the Chase and then keep building from there. I think that we have a really good shot (making the Chase) just doing what we're doing right now. We need a couple more things to go our way, to figure out before the Chase if we want to win races and be really competitive. I think that we have a top-10 team right now. We just need to keep building on it."
