    Kasey's thoughts on Darlington Raceway:
    "I really like racing at Darlington because it's such a unique track. It's a track that wears out your tires quickly, but it's a fun track to race on. I'm looking forward to racing under the lights, it just seems more exciting.

    "It's a little harder to pass with the addition of the safer walls because they took away almost 30 inches of racing. We're taking car No. 36, which is the same car that we won Texas in, so hopefully we can have the same performance at Darlington and take the Great Clips car back to Victory Lane!"
