Keller's Post Race Quotes

On Nazareth... "The win wasn't as easy as it looked, because it's always tough at Nazareth. It was amazing to me how fast the Albertson's Ford was all day long. To come off the truck and be quickest in both practices really boosts a driver's confidence. We knew we had the fastest car, but sometimes the fastest car doesn't always win. I have to credit Robert Yates Racing and the engines they provide ppc Racing. They are the best I've ever driven.

"It's also very special to give Greg Pollex and ppc Racing their first one-two finish. I can't say enough about my teammate Scott Riggs and the entire organization. Every week Scott and I have the equipment and the crew to contend for the win. Every driver looks for the perfect situation, and Scott and I are in it."

On the points standings... "This is the fourth time we led the points standings. Hopefully this time we'll hold on to it longer than one race. Our track record isn't very good when we're in the lead. Every time I've been on top, something happens the next weekend. But we're heading to Charlotte this week and I'm looking forward to build on the success we had last year."
