Notes:
  • The running of the Diamond Hill Plywood Co. 200 at Darlington Raceway will be the fourth time Kasey has competed at the 1.366-mile asphalt oval. Last season, Kasey started the Darlingtonraceway.com 200 (Spring event) in 25th after qualifying was rained out and finished eighth. In the Winn Dixie 200 (Fall event), he started third and finished sixth. In 2002, Kasey started 38th and finished 18th in the fall race for Robert Yates Racing.
  • The Great Clips team is taking chassis #36 to Darlington for the Diamond Hill Plywood Co. 200. This car competed earlier this season at North Carolina Speedway (started fourth; finished 26th after being involved in a pit road accident with Jason Leffler). Kasey was running in the top five when the accident occurred at Rockingham. Last season, chassis 36 raced at Nashville Superspeedway (first race); Bristol Motor Speedway (second race); Pikes Peak International Raceway; and North Carolina Speedway (second race).
  • The Great Clips team sits in 20th position in the overall NASCAR Busch Series points. Two weeks ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the team finished second after starting third in the 200-lap event.
  • Kasey's thoughts on Darlington Raceway:
    "I really like racing at Darlington because you can pass pretty easily. It's a track that wears out your tires quickly, but it's a fun track to race. "With the addition of the SAFER walls, I think racing will the different, but I hope it won't change too much. It should be another exciting race as it always is at Darlington. The SAFER walls took away 26 inches of the track, so you won't be able to race right up high next to the wall like you could before. I actually liked running next to the wall, but you basically just need to find grip and where your car handles the best. There are a few different grooves that you can race on at Darlington, and I look forward to this Saturday's race."
