KELLER’S THOUGHTS ON LAST WEEKEND:
 
“I’m very happy on how things turned out in California. We knew we had some work to do on our intermediate program and the team spent a lot of time in the off-season trying to figure out where we were lacking. The car was really good
and it only needed minor adjustments to be competitive. If we had some more laps to run, I’m sure we could of run down the guys in front of us and posted our first top-10 of the season. Hopefully this momentum will continue as we head into Vegas.”
 
THOUGHTS ON LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY:
“We just tested at Las Vegas Motor Speedway so I’m feeling pretty confident heading into this weekend. We’re bringing the same car that we tested last month and by the end of the test session we were running up front. Pit strategy is going to play a big part in the outcome of this race. We are running a smaller fuel cell so I think we’ll see a lot of fuel only stops throughout the race.”
