Kasey Kahne No. 9 Country Crock Dodge Charger

"Racing at Charlotte under the lights is always a good time. Being this close to home the team has a lot of friends and family that come out to see the race. So there's always a little added pressure to perform well in front of the home crowd.

"I've always enjoyed running at Charlotte, it's a track the really suits my driving style. It has been a couple weeks since I've been behind the wheel of the No. 9 Please Share Dodge and we want to get a good, strong finish. One of our best runs this season was a seventh at Atlanta and it is a track that is very similar to Charlotte. We had a shot at winning that race and the team has been performing well enough that we're going into this weekend shooting for an even better result."

QUICK FACTS:

* Kahne has an average start of 13.4 in the Busch Series at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

* Kahne is quite familiar running the Busch cars at Charlotte; he has logged 10 career starts at the 1.5-mile quad-oval totaling some 1,528 total laps.

* The No. 9 Dodge Country Crock Dodge Charger gained a spot in points after Darlington and now occupies the 11th spot in owner standings.

* Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs, Boris Said and Elliott Sadler will share duties in the No. 9 Ultimate Chargers Dodge in the Busch Series this season.
