Nestle Toll House returns to NASCAR Busch Series racing at Dover International Speedway, Saturday, September 25th, with Jason Keller driving the ppc Racing No. 22 Ford Taurus, to launch two new varieties of the Nestle® Toll House® Ultimates^Ù premium refrigerated cookie dough. New are the Nestle® Toll House® Ultimates^Ù Turtle Cookies and the Chocolate Almond Fudge cookie. These rounds out the Nestle® Toll House® Ultimates^Ù product line to six varieties.

Looking to Rebound: It's been a tough couple of months for Crew Chief Wes Ward and his No. 22 ppc Racing team; they have finished outside of the top-15 five times in their last seven races. They head to Dover this weekend looking to rebound with a top-five finish in the No. 22 Nestle® Toll House® Ford Taurus. Keller started eighth and finished 13th here in the June event after battling an ill-handling race car. But the 34-year old series veteran is no stranger to victory lane at the "Monster Mile." Keller won this event in 2000 in one of the most memorable wins of his career. The South Carolina native defeated the dominating Busch Series veteran, Mark Martin after starting the race 22nd to post the fourth win of his career. In 20 starts here, Keller has one win, five top-five's, nine top-10's and one pole.

"I'm really excited about driving the Nestle® Toll House® car this weekend; they have a lot of history with ppc Racing. It's great to have them back in the sport," Keller said. "My kids think it's really cool that I'm driving a cookie car this weekend. I'm looking forward to running up front and bringing home a top-five finish."

Equipment: The team is bringing car No. 57-19 to the track this weekend in Dover. This is the same car that Keller drove to a 13th place finish in the June event here at DIS. Keller also put this car on the pole at Texas last year and posted a second and fourth place finish at Kentucky and Kansas in 2003.
