KASEY KAHNE QUOTES:

"I am looking forward to a strong run this weekend in the Hellmann's Dodge Charger. We only have two races left this season, including Texas. I would love to cap that off by running up front, leading some laps and contending for the win. We had a hard-fought Busch Race at Texas in the spring and I really think we had one of the three best cars there. We came back from two laps down after a punctured tire caused an unscheduled stop, but got caught up in a wreck as we were closing in on the leaders. I know Trip and the guys have prepared a strong Hellmann's Dodge for this weekend. The same chassis has won a couple of races already this season and hopefully it will produce a top finish this weekend as well."

TRIP BRUCE QUOTES:

"B23 is the chassis we are running this week in Texas. All of the guys have done a fantastic job of rebuilding this car for Kasey Kahne after a late race crash in Kansas while running third. We are very excited about finishing the season with Kasey on the mile-and-a-half tracks. The Hellmann's / Ultimate Chargers team has one goal this week, win! "
