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

NOTE: Kahne wrecked coming out of the fourth turn in Happy Hour Saturday and will have to go to a backup Dodge for Sunday's race.

"I just got loose. It was really, really loose and we tightened it up and it was still loose. I just stayed out a little bit too long and ended up crashing. The car was really good, but it was just too loose. Hopefully the backup car will be a little better. The team did a good job getting the backup ready in time to get out on the track to see where we were at with it. We've got to work on some of the things inside of it, but it felt pretty good. We'll change the motor and put a better engine in it. We'll be all right. We'll change the seat insert, seat belts, mirror, steering and motor. It'll be all right starting in the back. I don't mind that. I just wish I hadn't torn up that racecar."
