The new design, which will be the paint scheme for 2013, features vibrant colors and angular shapes based on Great Clips’ newly branded salons. Look your best this weekend at PIR… When the gates open for the weekend at PIR, Great Clips stylists will have their scissors in hand  and will be offering free haircuts to race attendees.

Kahne has six NNS starts at the one-mile track and is credited with one pole, one top-10, an average start of 10.7, an average finish of 18.0 and a total of 45 laps led. In NASCAR Sprint Cup Competition, Kahne has one win under his belt (fall, 2011), along with two top-five and five top-10 finishes Kahne on racing in the Great Clips 200: “It’s gonna be a great weekend at Phoenix with Great Clips as the title sponsor of Saturday’s race. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the franchisees from the area as well as those that are coming from the corporate office in Minneapolis. I’m going to do everything I can to win this race for them! They are due a trip to victory lane and this is certainly the perfect weekend for it.”                 Kahne on the keys to success at PIR: “You need good forward drive off the corner and getting your car to turn all day off the corner will be the key at Phoenix. Each corner drives differently and you really have to have your car set up well in order to be competitive.”
