KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge)

NOTE: Kahne hit the wall in the first practice session after qualifying Friday. The team is trying to repair the damage and currently do not plan to go to a backup Dodge for Saturday night's race. Kahne qualified second fastest earlier Friday for Saturday's 500-lap race at the high-banked .533-mile track.

"It pushed up into the wall and I hit coming off turn four. I didn't think it was that bad, but when I got out and looked it was pretty bad. They'll fix it. It just takes a long time to fix the rear-end housing. We missed the entire last practice because of it, and that doesn't help. It was a good car, and I'm sure they'll fix it up as good as new. We've got a good pit and a good starting spot for the race, so we'll just forget about it for now and try to do the best we can Saturday night. I'm still looking forward to it."
