Knoxville, IA (August 7, 2007) - Kasey Kahne will return to competition at the Knoxville Raceway on Wednesday night, August 8, 2007 as he attempts to qualify for the 47th Annual SuperClean Knoxville Nationals. He will drive the car # 91, owned by Kasey Kahne Mororsports, and team with Joey Saldana in the Kasey Kahne #9.

Since last competing in the Knoxville Nationals in 2003, Kasey has gone on to become one of the dominant drivers in the NASCAR Nextel Cup series, having won 6 events in 2006 for Ray Evernham. In recent years Kasey has spent time at Knoxville as a car owner and fan, but the cockpit has beckoned. This year's purse of over $913,000 and the winner's share of $150,000 might just help pay for the jet fuel between Knoxville and Watkins Glen, NY where he will practice, qualify and compete in NASCAR event this weekend as well.

Reserved seats for the 4-day Knoxville Nationals are still available online at www.knoxvilleraceway.com or at the ticket windows on race days. Complete event schedules are available online as well.
