JASON KELLER ON RETURNING TO BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY:

"Bristol has always been one of my favorite tracks. I'm one of those guys that looks forward to Bristol and always have ever since the first time. This is a huge race for us. Anytime you come to a track and there are 100,000 fans, it's a big race."

JASON KELLER'S APPROACH AT BRSITOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY SINCE THE RESURFACING:

"The track is definitely different. There is not as much transition down in the corners, which makes the car more comfortable getting in and should lead itself to side-by-side racing. I don't think the approach to the race will change but the actual race may change, as far as getting two-wide and perhaps three-wide racing coming off the corner."
