Chassis No. 23: Went to Victory Lane at Las Vegas earlier this season. Also finished second at Atlanta.

KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"I definitely enjoy driving Dover. It's one of those tracks that you really attack. You're hard on the gas down the straightaways and then hard on the brakes entering the corner. During the course of the weekend a second groove will develop, but that becomes most obvious in the Cup race. I have been on the pole there in the Busch car before and had some success in those races."

"I really want to get a good finish in the Wisk Dodge this weekend. We have had really strong cars at Richmond, Darlington, and Lowe's but just haven't been able to close the deal and come home with a top finish. I plan on turning that around this weekend."

TRIP BRUCE QUOTES:

"Kasey has been pretty impressive at Dover in the Cup car but we have never run with him in the Busch car. We are taking chassis 23 this weekend. This particular Wisk Dodge has been awesome at the intermediate tracks but we feel it will translate well to Dover because they let us raise the car a half inch. Dover is a great track with a lot of downforce, which helps all four tires work the same there. At a lot of tracks you rely on the individual tires to turn the car but at Dover you use all four because of the high banking and vertical loads."

QUICK FACTS:

* In Busch Series competition Kasey Kahne has one pole, two top fives, four top 10s, and has led 63 laps in seven starts at Dover International Speedway (DIS).

* Last week in the Busch Series Kahne drove the No. 9 Wisk Dodge to a 16th-place finish after running over a spring on the track early in the race, damaging the front valence and sway bar.

* Kahne won the Nextel Cup race at LMS last Sunday night.

* The No. 9 WiskUltimate Chargers Dodge Charger will be pitted by Kahne's Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Nextel Cup team this Saturday night at LMS.
