Chassis No. 8: This is a new short track chassis run only once by Bill Elliott at Memphis where he qualified sixth and finished 16th.

KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"I am ready to get back to Busch racing this Friday night. Richmond is one of my favorite tracks and I love the one-day show schedule they have the Busch Series on. This weekend we have Lipton on our car which is special because I worked with them a lot before the Daytona 500 to campaign the Lipton Live Well Challenge."

"I got my first NEXTEL Cup win at this track a year ago. It is a big contrast going to Richmond from Talladega last week. There is a lot more that is in a driver's control at Richmond whether that be getting through the turns or avoiding a wreck. There is a lot of passing, especially on the long runs. One of the most important parts about driving Richmond is having a car that will turn good when you are off the throttle entering the turns. I am looking forward to working with Trip (Bruce) and those guys some more. We tested for two days with this same chassis a while back and I feel like we really narrowed in on a strong race setup so we will be looking for more of that on our return."
