JASON KELLER ON IOWA

"If I was going to build a track I would design it very similar to what they have done at Iowa. From what I'm hearing it is very similar to Richmond, which is my favorite track on the series."

"As a team we are looking forward to the six-hour practice on Thursday. In addition to trying different setups for the Iowa track it will give us a chance to try a lot of things in our short-track program that we would've liked to have tried already but haven't had the opportunity to do so with the no testing policy."

JASON KELLER ON NATIONWIDE "DASH 4 CASH"

"It always makes it more exciting when a company like Nationwide steps up to the plate with an additional incentive to win. When you factor in the $75,000 bonus plus what it pays to win the race I would make more in just this one race than I did during my first full season back in 1994."

KELLER TO PARTICIPATE IN AUTOGRAPH SESSION

Jason Keller will join other Nationwide Series Drivers for an autograph session at the track Saturday from 10:00 -- 11:00 a.m. under the Manatt Grandstand.
