Jason Keller named U.S. Army substitute driver for Pontiac Excitement 400

MB2 Motorsports announced that Busch Series driver Jason Keller will substitute for the injured Jerry Nadeau in tonight's Pontiac Excitement 400. It will be Keller's first Winston Cup start. He spent approximately 20 minutes in the U.S. Army backup car during Saturday's final practice session.

"While our thoughts are with Jerry during his recovery, we also want to express our appreciation to Jason for filling in on a short notice," said Jay Frye, CEO/general manager of MB2/MBV Motorsports. "Jason has proved himself in the Busch Series and we know he can get the job done."

Keller, 33, is in his 10th season as a Busch Series driver and is currently sixth in the Busch point standings. Last year, he finished second in the Busch season point standings and was third in 2001.

Keller, his wife, Deborah, and two children - Joe (6) and Jade (4) reside in Greenville, S.C.
