Kasey Kahne, Hendrick Motorsports - Q&A

I think just driving-wise, you know, Bristol is Bristol. This place races similar, drives similar. Like Kenny was saying, there's a couple things you work on with your car to make it right. Last week in Las Vegas, that was a good chance for us to see how the Gen-6 car will race on a mile-and-a-half with the same tire we ran last year. I was real happy with it, being able to move around on the racetrack, as hard as you could drive. Phoenix had a different tire and a different car. That was tough to say exactly. But you race that track different as well. Daytona, too.

Each track so far you definitely have to drive differently, set the cars up differently. I've been pretty pleased. I think the last two weeks our cars have really driven really well, the engines. Everybody at HMS is preparing and giving us great racecars.

Q:
Congratulations on a very big win today for the #5 team. Continued best of luck this week as we head out to California.

Kasey Kahne:
Thank you.
