JASON KELLER ON HAVING SOME TIME AWAY FROM THE TRACK:

"Well I've been out of the No. 11 car for 4 weeks now so I'm eager to get back behind the wheel and get the program back on track. The time away did not go wasted though because it gave the guys an opportunity to work on our cars and put some time into our aero packages. They have spent many hours over the last few weeks in the wind tunnel and chassis dyno so I'm excited to see what they've learned and how much our performance improves."

JASON KELLER ON MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY:

"Michigan is a great track for passing and it's a track that allows you to move around a bit and pick which groove works best for your race car. There are three lines there and at the start of the day you may start on top and by the day's end find more speed on the bottom of the track. Since it is a lot easier to maneuver around the track and these cars are all competitive, I think pit strategy will come into play. Fuel mileage and tires may become the determining factor."
