JASON KELLER ON MONTREAL

"I don't really have a feel for Montreal yet because with all the rain and craziness last year. We didn't get many quality laps in. Once we put the rain tires on it was more of just trying to survive than anything. So, we're more or less going in with a blank sheet of paper and we will have to try and figure out what we need to do. I felt like we were pretty competitive at Watkins Glen and learned a few things that will help with the set-up of the car this weekend."

TODD GORDON ON MONTREAL

"Watkins Glen was the first road course race for Jason and I at Baker Curb and we felt like we had a decent finish. We are bringing car 66 to Montreal, the same car we ran at Watkins Glen a few weeks ago. After that race we identified a few areas that we needed to improve upon and made some adjustments to the car that will improve our package."
