Kasey Kahne Quotes:

"It was nice to get a win early in the season and especially at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I am proud of Trip Bruce and all of the guys for being so competitive week in and week out. I thought we had a shot to win Daytona. Boris just about won in Mexico and now we won one in Vegas. The coolest thing about this is how far the whole team has progressed in a year and the quality of the cars they are putting on the racetrack. Trip has always been great to work with, we won a couple of truck races together and now we have won a couple of Busch races together."

"This weekend we are taking the Hellman's/Ultimate Chargers Dodge to Atlanta Motor Speedway which is a track I am very comfortable at. Even though it has Hellman's on it, it's the exact same car we won with last weekend with the Ragu scheme on it. We are hoping this chassis runs as well at Atlanta as it did in Vegas."

Trip Bruce Quotes:

"Before we left for Vegas last week I told the Ultimate Chargers crew that the only reason I would make them turn the same car around in two days and send it to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend would be if it won the race. I kind of had to eat my words on that one."

"Obviously it was very fulfilling for our team to win last weekend in Las Vegas. But it's back to business this weekend and we need to work just as hard to have a shot at winning at Atlanta. We are especially looking forward to having Kasey drive for us again in Atlanta. He really knows how to get around that track."
