KASEY KAHNE QUOTES

"Good racecars. Disappointing results.

"That's been the story for the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge team in the three Chase races. The results have diminished our title hopes, but not our desire to win. We have some good tracks coming up for the No. 9 team. We'll do everything we can to score as many points as we can these last seven races. Winning races would take away some of the disappointment of these first three races.

"I always look forward to Talladega. I enjoy racing there. Being three and four wide is a lot of fun, but you don't look forward to not being in control of what happens. The key is staying out of trouble. We got in an accident early, I think lap 10, in the spring race. There were about 15 cars in it. When something happens, you are going so fast and running so close, you can't avoid it. The key is to keep the car clean and have the opportunity to race the last 50 miles. It's three hours of intense racing."
