From the Driver’s Seat:

Kasey Kahne: “Looking ahead this this weekend and Talladega, I thought that we were good at Daytona and that our No. 95 had good speed there.  I’ve always enjoyed racing at Talladega, and of course you hate getting caught up in the wrecks, but if you can avoid them, you can have an opportunity to really have a great day there.  My strategy for every superspeedway race is to try and race as close to the front as I possibly can the entire race.  I used to try the riding around in the back of the pack, along with a few other various strategies, but I’ve found that for me, getting up towards the front and staying up there usually works out better for me.”

From the Pit Box:

Travis Mack: “We built a brand new Camaro ZL1 after Daytona that we’re bringing to Talladega this weekend. In Daytona, we were running sixth at the time before we were wrecked, so I was pretty happy with our race of course up until that point.  We’ll bring a very similar package this weekend, and when we combine that with it being a brand new race car, I feel good about heading into this weekend.  My game plan of course is to go and win, but I’d love for us to get our No. 95 up to the front of the pack and try to lead every lap in order to also try and stay out of trouble all afternoon.”
