From the Driver's Seat:

Kasey Kahne: "The racing at Michigan has definitely been different the past few years since they repaved the track. It's still different than it used to be years ago of course, but I feel like it's a good track and it's going to be much different this year with our new team trying to figure it all out with the new Camaros as well.  Michigan has really become our fastest track on the circuit since the repave.  You can move around there with the various lanes, but really you're always going to go slower unless you're in what becomes the preferred lane during the weekend.  The preferred lane at Michigan is a little tough to explain, but it's basically through the middle of the track where everybody usually runs most of the time.  Everyone is fighting for the limited space in that lane during the race.  Restarts are crucial at Michigan as well because you can get passed pretty easily, or you can pass cars easily depending on where you start in the inside or outside lanes, and then how everybody gets through the first corner in your lane."

From the Pit Box:

Travis Mack: "Kasey (Kahne) has had a lot of success at Michigan so far in his career with some great runs, so that's always helpful when we head into race weekends.  We are looking forward to featuring Chevrolet Accessories aboard on our Camaro ZL1 as well this weekend since we'll be in Chevy's backyard of Detroit.  Our goal for Michigan is to hopefully get out of our slump of disappointing finishes that we've had the last few weeks.  Our cars recently have been showing speed throughout the races, but we just haven't been able to cap the weekend off with a good finish due to one factor or another.  The Chevy teams have really been working hard to catch-up with the other teams and manufacturers this season.  We are getting closer every week and I'm looking forward to our hard work paying off in Michigan this weekend."
