The No. 38 Great Clips Chevy will have a little bit of a different look this weekend at Dover International Speedway. The car will feature a textured jersey look to represent the different sports uniforms that EA SPORTS® uses on their sports games. Great Clips and EA SPORTS® have a long-standing relationship and have partnered in the past with the Ultimate Gaming Makeover Sweepstakes and also giving away special offers for EA SPORTS® games during select times of the year to Great Clips customers.  Great Clips and EA SPORTS® are continuing their partnership, including involvement with the No. 38 Great Clips team.

Kahne at Dover International Speedway: By the numbers… In 12 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) starts at Dover International Speedway, Kahne is credited with one pole (fall, 2004), three top-five and six top-10 finishes. He has 63 laps led with an average start of 10.6 and an average finish of 12.4.

In NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition at Dover, Kahne is credited with one top-five and five top-10 finishes. He has a total of 88 laps led with an average start of 12.8 and an average finish of 21.8.

Who’s on the pit box?… Trent Owens, who has led James Buescher and Nelson Piquet Jr. to NNS victories this season, serves as crew chief for the No. 38 Great Clips team with drivers Kahne and Brad Sweet. A former driver himself, Owens is a long-time fixture in the NASCAR garage. Over the years, the Darlington, S.C., native has been successful working with a variety of drivers with different levels of experience and has visited victory lane with both rookies and veterans alike including Buescher, Piquet. Jr., Mark Martin, Dave Blaney and Reed Sorenson.

This Week’s Impala… The No. 38 team will unload chassis TMS-329 this weekend at DIS. This is the same chassis in which Kahne captured the pole at the inaugural NNS race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Additionally, Kahne piloted this chassis earlier this month at Atlanta Motor Speedway where he started fourth and worked his way up to second, but was victim of a flat tire in the late stages of the race, followed by contact with another competitor which ended his night early.

Kahne on racing at Dover International Speedway: “The key is having a car that can still handle well 30-40 laps into a run and staying out of trouble. Dover is an easy place to get in trouble. It’s definitely one of the more mentally and physically demanding tracks that we go to. I’m looking forward to another race with the Great Clips team this weekend. I can see that the addition of Trent Owens (crew chief) is having a positive impact on performance and I’m hopeful that we can get Great Clips, and partner EA SPORTS®,into victory lane very soon – hopefully this Saturday at Dover.”
