Kasey Kahne Quotes:

"We had a great test at Vegas with our Ragu/Ultimate Chargers Dodge. This is a new car and I am ready to get back on the track. We led a lot of laps at Daytona in February and I believe we would have been a contender for the win, just got caught up in someone's wreck. This weekend I want to finish what we started in Daytona. Our Busch program at Evernham Motorsports is so strong that it's really fun to come over and race. I saw Boris have an awesome weekend with the No. 9 Team down in Mexico last weekend and I don't want to miss out."

Trip Bruce Quotes:

"We should probably be satisfied with the second-place run we had last week in Mexico, but to be honest it's disappointing. We had a piece of paper fly up on the grill, which got the engine too hot and costs us some horsepower on the last few restarts. I think Boris (Said) would have won it if not for that. The race at Mexico did help us put California behind us, and also raised us from 40th to 19th in owner's points, only 50 out of the top 10. When we finally made it back home and through customs it was 4:30 in the morning on Monday, so I gave the guys the day off. This is our toughest travel stretch right now."

"Now we are focused on Las Vegas. We have a new car that tested extremely well there in January. Kasey (Kahne) did such a great job of driving for us at Daytona before being caught up in someone else's wreck. The guys on this Ragu/Ultimate Chargers team want to get him up front again this weekend so he can compete for the win."
