KASEY KAHNE:

"The entire Ultimate Chargers team has been anticipating our return to Charlotte. We had an awesome race there in the spring and came home with our first victory of the year. This weekend will be the first with Klondike as the primary and we want to have another strong run. Our Busch program has been running well all season. Mike (Shiplett, team director) and the guys have been preparing great cars at the shop. I think that has been one of the keys to our success this year. The cars have been unloading well and it doesn't take too many adjustments to dial them in during the race."
