No. 30 Rexall Chevrolet News and Notes
Rexall welcomes back Kasey Kahne… Kasey Kahne will make his second start with primary sponsor Rexall this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. This will mark Kahne’s seventh start of the season for Turner Motorsports this season. Next up, Kahne will compete in two more races for the team at Dover International Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Familiar voice on the radio… The No. 30 Rexall crew is the same team Kahne works with when he jumps behind the wheel of Turner Motorsports’ No. 38 entry. Under Stewart Cooper’s guidance this season, Kahne has earned two top-five and three top-10 finishes, leading 43 laps along the way.
Dollar General 300 powered by Coca-Cola… LongtimeTurner Motorsports partner, Dollar General, will serve as title sponsor of this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) event at Chicagoland Speedway. Dollar General will also serve as title sponsor of the October NNS event at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage.
Chicagoland Speedway: by the numbers… In six NNS starts at Chicagoland Speedway, Kahne has one top-five and one top-10 finish.
Turner Motorsports: In the Hunt… In 27 Nationwide Series events in 2011, Turner Motorsports-prepared entries have notched three wins, 20 top-five and 53 top-10 finishes. All three of Turner Motorsports’ championship-contending drivers are inside the top-six in the driver point standings with Reed Sorenson in third, Justin Allgaier in fifth and Jason Leffler in sixth.
This week’s Impala… The No. 30 Rexall team will hit the track with chassis TMS-124 this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. This chassis has seen track action several times this season at Texas Motor Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Michigan International Speedway.
Kasey Kahne on racing at Chicagoland Speedway
“I am looking forward to running in the Nationwide Series again this weekend. It’s fun to get a chance to run these races because we don’t worry about points, we are out for the win. I know we are close to getting to victory lane with these Turner Motorsports guys and hopefully we can do it this weekend in the No. 30 Rexall Chevy. Chicagoland is a great 1.5-mile track where you can run the bottom and middle groove. Recently, a lot of these Nationwide races have come down to fuel mileage and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it come down to that again this weekend.”
