Kasey Kahne
No. 9 Ragu Dodge Charger Race Facts

Info: The same chassis that Kahne drove to victory at Charlotte. It also ran at Las Vegas.

KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"We've had some real good finishes in the past few Busch races. I think it's a testament to all the hard work that Shiplett and the guys have been putting into our Busch program. Each week we're unloading competitive race cars and continuing to improve on their handling throughout the race weekend. I think this weekend at Chicago will be no different.

"Chicago is another intermediate track and we've had a lot of success on those types of tracks in the past couple of years. I always look forward to climbing behind the wheel of the Ragu Dodge Charger in the Busch Series and I'm hoping to get some good information that we can transfer to the Cup side and help get our Cup program back to the level we're used to."

QUICK FACTS:

* After finishing sixth in last week's race at Daytona, the No. 9 gained two spots and now sits sixth in owner points

* Kahne has one top five and one top 10 finish in five Busch Series starts at Chicago.

* Kahne has been on a roll in his last three Busch Series starts. He's posted an average finish of 6.3.

* Lowe's Motor Speedway was the site of Kahne's first Busch win of the season. He led 43 laps en route to victory.

* Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs, Boris Said, Elliott Sadler and Chase Miller have all shared driving duties of the No. 9 Ultimate Chargers Dodge in the Busch Series this season.
