KASEY KAHNE FAST FACTS

Share:


Notes: - The running of the Twister 300 at Chicagoland Speedway will be the third time Kasey has competed at the 1.5-mile banked tri-oval in the NASCAR Busch Series.

- The Great Clips team is taking chassis #45 to Chicago. This car has only competed one other time this season in the Carquest Auto Parts 300 at Lowe?s Motor Speedway. Chassis # 45 started third and finished 25th at the 1.5-mile facility.

- Kasey sits in 13th position in the overall NASCAR Busch Series driver point standings, while the Great Clips team assumes the 12th position in the NASCAR Busch Series owner point standings due to a driver substitution at The Milwaukee Mile.

- Last weekend at Daytona International Speedway, the team finished sixth after starting in 14th position for the 100-lap event. Kasey?s top-10 finish marks the team?s eighth of the season.

Kasey?s thoughts on Chicagoland Speedway:
?I like racing at Chicago. It?s a really nice place to race, and it is extremely fast. It seems like the past two years we?ve struggled there. Two years ago we just couldn?t get the car to handle well, and last year the handling wasn?t that great, but we probably could have finished in the top 10. Late in the race I think someone blew up, and I hit their oil on the track and slammed into the wall, so that ended our chances of finishing up front. It?s a new track, and it?s getting better every time we go out there, so I look forward to this weekend. It should be a good day Saturday for the Great Clips team.?
