Keller Motorsports and Tommy St. John looking to continue success in Nashville, announce plans for 2006

Indianapolis, IN (February 26, 2006) -- Driver Tommy St. John and Keller Motorsports have officially announced their plans for the 2006 season in the CRA Super Series. The team will make the trek to Nashville for the All American 150 at the Music City Motorplex on March 18 and continue with the CRA Series through the first five races of the 2006 schedule. After the fifth event, the team will evaluate their performance and decide if they will continue to run the full schedule or just a few selected events.

"I cannot thank Steve Keller and Keller Motorsports enough for giving me such a great opportunity to drive for his team," said driver Tommy St. John. "Steve has a very successful business that requires a lot of time and resources and there may be some races this year that we just are not able to make if the team's finances get tight. Our plan is to run the first five races then evaluate things. If we have done well and have not torn up our equipment, we may continue going after the season championship. If we run into trouble during the first five races, we may skip a few events and focus on the big events such as the Anderson 250 and Winchester 400."

Team Owner Steve Keller acknowledges Tommy's talent and elaborates on his hopes for Tommy. "If we have to run limited schedule in CRA, I hope someone gives Tommy an opportunity to show his talents during our off weeks," said Keller. "Tommy is the best driver I have ever seen and it would be great if he could get a full-time ride with an ARCA or Hooters team. I want to support him as much as possible and even though my racing plans are with the CRA, I don't want to hold Tommy back if he gets a shot. He definitely deserves it!"

Last year, Tommy won the 2005 Rookie of the Year Championship by logging five top-10 finishes and finishing ninth overall in the final 2005 CRA Super Series Championship Points.
