KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"We haven't had the kind of start we expected this season, so it's good to be going to an event where the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger visited victory lane last year. Despite the changes to the nose and tire compounds, our Dodge Charger has been competitive at the intermediate tracks this season. We had a pole at Las Vegas. We've been fast. The challenge is to make the right adjustments during the race and keeping up with the changing track conditions. I think our team will do just that this weekend at Texas."

QUICK FACTS

* Kahne and the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW team captured their second win of 2006 at Texas.

* Kahne has led a total of 213 laps at the Great American Speedway.

* He's only failed to qualify out of the top five, just once in five career starts at Texas.

* Kahne has earned a driver rating of 92.9; ninth-best.
