KASEY KAHNE-38-Great Clips Ford Taurus (Qualified 3rd)

"We started out pretty slow the other day, but by the end of practice on the test day we were pretty good. We weren't bad again this morning in race runs, and then we switched to qualifying and we were real loose. We went to qualify right there and we were pretty tight. It was probably good that we were loose earlier today. Just two good laps. We were just a little bit tight and missed it by a little bit."

"That's something that myself and my crew chief talked about earlier this week that could be a benefit to us coming here. I have as many laps on the track as Bobby or any veteran type of driver that has raced a lot more. Yeah, I thin it definitely helps being able to test on Tuesday and nobody having a whole lot of lap time."

"I've learned a lot as a driver driving each race track, what the car is looking for, but I've also learned a lot about the cars themselves. My background is I came from building Sprint cars and working on Midgets and doing that, and these cars are completely different so it's been nice this being the second year of actually learning the race cars. It makes it that much easier to get them set up right and drive. You can kinda figure out what you're looking for easier and what you need to change to get that feeling."
