KASEY KAHNE:

"Michigan is one fast race track. With the high level of rpm's that we pull the whole way around the track it's going to be very important to have a strong, durable engine. Gillett Evernham engines always give us great horsepower under the hood and this week I expect it will be no different.

"Michigan has a lot of grooves in the corners, so despite how your car is handling you can almost always find a line to make it go fast. It's been a few races since I've been behind the wheel of the No. 9 Lawry's Dodge Charger but I'm excited to go out there and try and get a strong finish for Lawry's. Hopefully along the way we can learn some things that will transfer over to the Cup car come Sunday."

QUICK FACTS:

* Kahne has always been fast on the two-mile oval in Michigan. In four Busch starts he's finished in the top-10 three times and led four laps.

* Kahne has been on a roll in his last four Busch Series starts. He's posted an average finish of 7.7 in his Busch races since winning at Charlotte.

* Lowe's Motor Speedway was the site of Kahne's first Busch win of the season. He led 43 laps en route to victory.
