KASEY KAHNE QUOTES

"The results the past three weeks don't reflect the potential of the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge team. We certainly had a car capable of top-10 finishes in each. That's important. We just have to execute and do what we're capable of doing.

Michigan has been a good track for the No. 9 team. We won there earlier this year and a had a couple other finishes in the top five. I like the track because you can move around searching for a faster line. Cars will be running two and three wide. With four races left to decide the Chase field, we have time to get back in the top 10. The first chance comes this weekend at Michigan. We must take advantage of the opportunity."
