JASON KELLER ON AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY
"The track has gotten rougher every year that we have been there, which makes having the right shock package a key to being successful. It seems like it settles which makes it harder to get your car working right."

JASON KELLER ON IN-N-OUT BURGER
"California is a fun part of the country and it gives me a chance to go to In-N-Out Burger. I love In-N-Out Burgers so much sometimes I'll go there twice over the weekend. I was thinking about getting a burger last weekend in Kansas, but decided to wait until this weekend so I can go to In-N-Out Burger."

TODD GORDON ON AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY
"We are taking car 85, which we ran last at Michigan. We ran well in practice and qualified 12th but had a cylinder firing issue for the majority of the race. I felt that the car was very competitive and we will be using a lot of the same setup this weekend. We did make a few adjustments to accommodate how much rougher Fontana is compared to Michigan which will allow the car to turn better."

KELLER TO APPEAR @ STATER BROS. RACEFEST
Jason will join other Nationwide and Sprint Cup drivers to sign autographs at the Stater Bros. RACEFEST Thursday from 6:00 -- 8:00 p.m. PDT in the FanZone outside of Auto Club Speedway.
