Jason Keller and ppc Racing Head To Nashville Seeking Sponsorship

(MOORESVILLE, N.C.) -- For the first time in 2004, ppc Racing and driver Jason Keller will head to a NASCAR Busch Series event without sponsorship on the No. 22 Ford Taurus. Keller, who has ten-career victories, is sixth in the series driver standings heading to Nashville Superspeedway. Both Keller and Keith Barnwell, Co-Owner and General Manager of ppc Racing, feel confident of their chances as they continue to seek sponsorship for this weekend's event in Nashville.

"ppc Racing has proven to deliver and perform for all its sponsors," said Barnwell. "Nashville is one of 12 events we do not have a primary sponsor in place. Our team has a very good chance of winning the only major racing series event of the weekend. The team tested at Nashville a couple of weeks ago and has a great car for qualifying and the race. We've shown we can win here and lead many laps in both the spring and summer events so another win or top-10 finish is very realistic."

Just how good is ppc Racing at Nashville Superspeedway? In six events, ppc Racing has two victories and four additional top-10 finishes. Over the past four seasons, ppc Racing has collected more than 160 top-10 finishes, including 21 trips to Victory Lane. With Keller behind the wheel, ppc Racing has finished in the top-five driver points standings the past four seasons as both look toward another run for the title.

"ppc Racing has the personnel and equipment to win another championship," said Keller. "ppc Racing won the championship in 2000 and is no stranger to Victory Lane. This year we've got several races with no sponsorship backing and Nashville is one of them. Bristol was our first race without a sponsor but we were able to put together a one-race deal and finished eighth. I really want to win that guitar the speedway gives to its race winner. I've raced at both the short track and superspeedway for years and want to win that guitar bad. To win or score another top-10 finish at Nashville would definitely keep us in the title chase and I think we can do it this weekend. Any company looking to sponsor the No. 22 Ford Taurus this weekend will surely not be disappointed."
