JASON KELLER ON RICHMOND

"I enjoy racing at Richmond and have typically run well there. The fact that you can run multiple lines provides for some exciting short track racing for both the fans and the drivers. We didn't run as well as we would have liked to at Phoenix but we've made a few adjustments that should make us stronger at Richmond."

TODD GORDON ON RICHMOND

"We had a great run at Talladega and although this is a different type of track, we are looking to carry that positive momentum into this week. I always look forward to going short-track racing especially at a place where Jason has won before. After analyzing the Phoenix race we've made some major adjustments and we're bringing a new package to Richmond so I believe we will be a lot more competitive this week."

VETERAN DRIVER TO MINGLE WITH ARMY VETERANS

Jason Keller along with 11 other NNS drivers will be making a special appearance in the hospitality area at RIR from 3:30 -- 3:45 p.m. Friday to mingle with guests from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center who are being hosted by the VFW and Rheem.
