EARLY ENGINE PROBLEMS END PROMISING DAY FOR KELLER

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March, 23, 2009 -- The day started on a high note when Jason Keller qualified the No. 27 Scott® Ford Fusion third but hopes of a second-career victory at Bristol Motor Speedway were quickly erased by early engine problems. Despite the motor problems and being caught in a late lap tangle on the backstretch, Keller managed to finish the race running, coming home 28th in the Scott's Turf Builder 300.

"Something happened internally with the motor but those things are going to happen in this sport," Keller said. "Looking at the positive side there are a lot of things we can build off from this weekend. We were fast in both practices, qualified great and once we get some of the little things figured out we're going to start finishing great."

Keller stands 11th in the NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings as the series takes a week off before heading to Texas Motor Speedway for the running of the O'Reilly 300 Saturday, April 4th, at 2:30 p.m.
