KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"We had a little detour at New Hampshire after three straight top-10 finishes. Handling is the key there and we missed on the setup in the middle of the race. It's difficult to get track position back at New Hampshire.

"I really like Dover. It's fast, but you can race hard and pass cars. The key is having the car work 30-40 laps into a run. We've made a lot of progress with our Dodge Avenger since the last time we were there. The key is getting the car stable during practice on Friday so that's not an issue during Saturday's practice session.

"We've had success at Dover in the past. We're ready for 'The Monster Mile'."
