KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"We had a strong run here in 2005, qualified on the pole and even led some laps. But our focus this week is just to go out, have fun and do our best to get a strong run for the Doublemint Dodge Charger. I have had a lot of fun working with the folks at Wrigley's and we're proud to have them on our Dodge this weekend. Our Busch team has really been on top of their game lately so I always look forward to having a good car and a shot at a top finish when I drive for them."

QUICK FACTS:

* Look for a unique green and white paint scheme on the No. 9 Gillett Evernham Motorsports Busch Series entry this week as Wrigley's Doublemint is on board as a primary sponsor.

* Kahne took the pole and led 44 laps in his last Busch start at PIR (spring-2005) with Gillett Evernham Motorsports.

* His best finish at PIR in the Busch Series was 11th in the fall of 2004.

* Kahne has been out of the No. 9 Busch car for the past two weeks. He last sat behind the wheel at Lowe's Motor Speedway where he finished 17th.

* Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs, Boris Said, Chase Miller and Elliott Sadler will share duties in the No. 9 Dodge Charger in the Busch Series this season.
