Fort Worth, Texas (April 2, 2009) -- Kevin Hamlin in his second start of the 2009 season in the No. 81 D.H. Griffin Dodge qualified 14th for Saturday's O'Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway with a lap time of 29.227 (184.761 mph). Hamlin's qualifying time was -0.542 off the pole sitter.

Making his second start of the 2009 season for MacDonald Motorsports, Hamlin was pleased with the entire day, "It's good to rebound from the tough weekend we had at Bristol with a good day in practice and a good qualifying lap today. I really appreciate the effort, hard work and long hours the crew put into the D.H. Griffin Dodge over the last two weeks. I look forward to getting back on the track for the race on Saturday."

Following practice, the MacDonald Motorsports crew made few changes in the garage. "We just put the D.H. Griffin Dodge in qualifying trim and Kevin did the rest," said David Ingram, crew chief for the No. 81 Dodge.

The O' Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway will be shown live on ESPN2 on Saturday April 4 with green flag coverage beginning at 2:30 p.m. (ET).
