KASEY KAHNE QUOTES

On Racing at Infineon. "We did some testing last week with Boris Said, trying to figure it out, and trying to get better at road racing. I really enjoy road racing. I'm not where I want to be there yet, but I think our cars are really good and everything is good. We've just got to get the driver to step up a little bit and keep improving. Hopefully this weekend we'll keep it on the road the whole race and have a good result. I think we can definitely get a top 15 or top 10 or maybe better than that out of it."

On the Win at Michigan. "We had a really great Dodge Charger up there. We felt good about it and qualified first. That really helped out our pit stops on Sunday, and the pit crew did an awesome job. It was a great team effort. Those guys did an awesome job after we had to fall back because of debris on the nose of the car. We got back up there. and proud to be driving that car. It was pretty good. I'm having the guys over tomorrow (Wednesday) night, everyone on my team. We're having a big barbeque and going to have some fun. We've had it planned for awhile and now to win again it's going to make for a pretty good time for tomorrow (Wednesday) night."
