KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON GOING BACK TO OVAL-TRACK RACING:

"Well we didn't have much luck the last two weeks at the road-course races so I think we (the team) are all looking forward to going back to oval-track racing. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy road-course racing but between the rain in Montreal and then a transmission problem in Watkins Glen I'm happy to be moving on."

KELLER'S THOUGHTS ON MICHIGAN:

"It's great that Carfax is back on the car again this year. They are a great group of individuals and we have a lot of fun representing them in Michigan."

"Michigan has been one of those tracks that has eluded me. I have the most starts there but have never been able to break into the top-five. We're bringing a strong car with us this weekend so I'm hoping to break that trend and get Carfax a top-five on Saturday."
