Keller Finishes 23rd at Kentucky; Drives Past the 100,000 Career Mile Mark on the NNS

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June, 15, 2009 - Eleven laps into Saturday's Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway, Jason Keller brought the Cottonelle® Ford Fusion down pit road with an apparent flat tire, and then was caught speeding exiting the pits putting the Kleenex® Racing team two laps down in the 37th position. Keller gained many valuable positions as well as points as the race continued and went on to finish 23rd.

On lap 160 Keller, who was three laps down at the time, completed his 157th lap around Kentucky Speedway reaching yet another milestone in his illustrious career, 100,000 miles driven on the NASCAR Nationwide Series circuit.

"I wish I could have reached this milestone while on the lead lap, but it is definitely an honor to have competed long enough to reach the 100,000 mile mark on this series," Keller said. "We've had some bad breaks the last couple weeks but we're not going to throw in the towel. We've got a good race team and in racing you're going to have some ups and downs. We're going to keep working hard and get things going back in the right direction next week at Milwaukee."

Keller, who now stands eighth in the NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings, heads to The Milwaukee Mile Saturday for the running of the Camping World RV Sales 200 presented by RVs.com at 8:30 p.m. EST.
