    Kasey's thoughts on Gateway International Raceway:
    "Gateway is a fun track to race on. There are long straightaways and two different corners that are short and tight, and I like racing on tracks like that. "This will be my second time racing at St. Louis in the Busch car. I have competed on the track a few times in my sprint car, and I like the feel of the track. Last year we qualified well but unfortunately got involved in an accident, so we didn't have a good finish. This year we're hoping to not only qualify well but to also have a strong finish."
