KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON COMING BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN:

"It's really amazing to think about how far this team has come in a year. It's also very hard to believe it has been a year already. It seems like just yesterday Greg Pollex called me and told me about the opportunity over at CJM Racing. Since then we have gone from a limited team to a full-blown Nationwide Series team. I guess you could say it's our one-year anniversary and what a great track (Darlington) to have that happen at."

KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON DARLINGTON RACEWAY:

"I'm a big fan of Darlington Raceway. On a personal level, it's considered my hometown track so there is a level of excitement at Darlington that I don't have anywhere else. On the racing level, it's a whole new track for us. They came in and repaved the track so we're heading into this not knowing about set-ups or the speeds we are going to carry. The first practice session will be more like a test session for us."
