JASON KELLER ON KANSAS SPEEDWAY:

"I didn't run at Kansas last year so it'll take a little bit to get familiar with the feel of the track again. Kansas is really similar to Chicago and fortunately we had an opportunity to run there earlier this year so we know what kind of package we need to bring. From what I recall the track is fast and smooth. It is one of those tracks that we'll race on the bottom grove at the start and then work our way into two grooves as the race continues. Track position and pit strategy will play a big role in this race."

THE COUNTDOWN SLOWLY COMES TO A CLOSE FOR THE ALL-TIME START RECORD:

"I guess you could say the moment has finally come for another milestone in my career. It's been a privilege being a part of the NASCAR Busch Series all these years. I've had a great career in this series and would love to log 400 more career starts before its all said and done. I've found a home in the NBS and as long as I remain competitive I will continue to build on these records."
