* Kahne returns to the seat of the No. 38 Great Clips Camry for next three races... This weekend at Darlington Raceway, Kahne will make his first of three consecutive starts for Braun Racing in the No. 38 entry.

* Who's on the pit box? Stewart Cooper will call the shots for Kahne and serve as crew chief for the No. 38 Great Clips team in the eight races that he is behind the wheel.

Kahne on the challenges of the "Lady in Black"

"I'm excited to be back in the No. 38 Great Clips Camry this weekend. Darlington is a great race track. Passing is the challenge here. It's so fast and there is so little room. You move around a little bit and your car will become a lot tighter and your car doesn't turn as well. There is a certain spot that you need your car to be in and if you can't be there, you feel like you're going to get a spot taken from you."

Equipment Information

The No. 38 Great Clips team will hit the track with chassis #044 in this weekend's Royal Purple 200. This chassis last saw track time at Texas Motor Speedway and Auto Club Speedway, where David Reutimann finished 26th and 8th, respectively. Kahne drove this chassis in three races last season including Texas, Charlotte and Atlanta where he finished 11th, 8th and 30th and leading for a total of 355 laps in those events.
