LATE LAP SURGE PROPELS KELLER TO ANOTHER TOP 10

[IMAGE]NASHVILLE, Tenn., June, 1, 2009 -- When the green flag flew for the final time Saturday in the Heluva Good! 200 at Dover International Speedway, Jason Keller found himself in the 12th position on the brink of another top-10 finish. When the checkered flag flew just two laps later, Keller had moved the No. 27 A&P/MDA Ford Fusion past three more cars to earn his fourth top 10 of the season.

Keller started the race from the 13th spot and spent all but three laps in the top 15. In just twelve races this season he already has as many top-10 finishes as he did all of last year and now has finished in the top 20 in eight consecutive races.

"I'm really proud to bring home a top 10 for the great people at A&P and all the kids from the MDA that helped us with the drawings that made for a really cool paint scheme," Keller said. "It was a good weekend for the whole Kleenex® Racing team, we practiced well, qualified solid and our pits stops were good all day."

Fans can bid on the specially designed A&P/MDA firesuit that Keller wore during the race Saturday until June 5th at http://auctions.nascar.com with 100 percent of the proceeds going to benefit the MDA.

Keller remains sixth in the NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings as the series heads to Baker Curb Racing's backyard, Nashville Superspeedway, for the running of the Federated Auto Parts 300 Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EST.
