KAHNE SCHEDULED TO MAKE MICHIGAN RACE WEEKEND UNFORGETTABLE FOR DODGE MOTORSPORTS FANS
WARREN, Mich. (Aug. 13, 2007) -- Michigan race fans who are wanting to get a little closer to the action this weekend needn't look any farther than Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge. NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne will be making an appearance there on Thursday, Aug. 16.
Kahne, driver of the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger will be signing autographs and greeting Dodge Motorsports fans from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge in Warren.
Kahne will be signing autographs for two hours so fans are advised to arrive at the dealership extra early to assure they receive an autograph. Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge is located at 24800 Van Dyke Ave in Warren, Mich. They can be contacted at 586-573-4000.
"We're just thrilled to have Kasey pay us a visit at Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge," said Carl Galeana, owner of Galeana's Van Dyke Dodge. "It's not everyday that we get a NASCAR superstar to come to our dealership so we're all very excited.
"We actually won the appearance after a bid in the United Way Dealer's Auction back in 2006. It was for a great cause and I never thought Galeana's would win but we're ecstatic to have Kasey here at the dealership."
"Having the opportunity to go out and meet the fans and the dealers whose support allows us to race week in and week out is always a great experience," explained Kahne. "It's one of the things I enjoy most but I also enjoy running at Michigan. It's a fast track with a lot of different grooves. So despite how your car may be handling you can really experiment with the different lines around the track to find the one that our Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger will be the fastest in."
Kahne has one victory at Michigan International Speedway, four top-fives, four top-10s and he has led 40 laps.
