KASEY KAHNE: "I'm looking forward to going to Sonoma. I haven't had good results there, but I like the challenge the road course presents. It's tough mentally and physically on the driver. I just need to stay focused and keep the racecar on the course the entire race. The key to a good finish at Infineon is staying on course. We will have a new Dodge Avenger chassis for the race, so we're anxious to see how much progress we've made with our COT and how it performs on the road course. We just need to run up front and get in position to challenge for the win. We know we can do it."

QUICK FACTS

* This will be Kahne's fourth career start at the 1.99-mile road course in Sonoma.

* Kahne's best qualifying effort of sixth came in last season's race at Infineon.

* Kahne has an average starting spot of 12.4 in the five COT races this season.
