KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON THE POINTS SITUATION:

"The point standings "battle" has never been far from my thoughts. The last time I ran a full season (2005) I finished out the season ninth in points and I would love nothing more than to return to the awards banquet. It's funny now

that I am in a position to get into the top-10 again I realize just how much it means. When your winning all the time you tend to take things like that for granted."

KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON CALIFORNIA:

"The one thing that comes to mind with this race is HOT! Last year it was about 120 degree's in the race car and it felt like you were going to melt. Hopefully the temperatures will be a little bit cooler and we can enjoy our time in Southern California."
