NASCAR Busch Series vetern Keller to drive for Kleenex® Racing, Brewco Motorsports at Kentucky Speedway
NASCAR Busch Series veteran Jason Keller will be behind the wheel of the No. 27 Kleenex Ford for five races during the 2007 season including the Meijer 300 Presented by Oreo at Kentucky Speedway June 16.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to work with Brewco again, and with a sponsor like Kleenex® and Kimberly-Clark," said Keller. "I'll be driving at tracks where I have a lot of experience, and have had some success, so I'm really looking forward to the challenge."
Keller has teamed-up with Brewco previously, making his 400th career NASCAR Busch Series start driving for the team last year at O'Reilly Raceway Park. He also had prior seat time in Brewco's No. 66 Ford Fusion, having stepped in for Greg Biffle. In five previous starts at Kentucky Speedway, Keller has had two top-5's and led laps in 2003 and in 2005. He finished second in 2003 to Bobby Hamilton, Jr.
Keller made his NASCAR Busch Series debut in 1991 and ran the series full-time from 1995-2005. In those 11 full-time seasons, he finished in the top-10 in final driver's points nine times.
