I think it's complete BS that Keller was released. What the heck does Finch think Mike Wallace can do in that POS car that Keller couldn't do?

THE 1 CAR HAS NOT RUN WORTH A FLIP SINCE BEING FORCED TO SET OUT A RACE LAST YEAR. JASON NEEDS TO REPLACE ONE OF THOSE CLUSTER ROOKIES AT ROUSH.

I have been huge fan of Jason's since I watched him 10 years ago. He is a class act in the garage area and on the track.
I think James finch is a numb-nut for letting him go after only 8 races.. hell that isn't enough time to get aquainted with the garage crew!!
I hope Jason can get a decent ride... he still has 10 good years in him.. I'm sure of it!

Bummer! He was the only reason I watched Busch. Now at least I can root against the #1 team the rest of the year.

Why would anyone replace someone like Jason who is 12th in points? It is difficult enough for Busch Drivers to do well with all the Cup drivers in a class they don't belong in. This man is a class act

I sure hope Jason gets a decent ride soon so he can start running circles around the #1 car. I'm with you Vince, my new favorite team is now anybody that beats the #1 team.

Was just wondering if anyone knows if Jason has had any offers yet? I hate this happened to him. I do not care for Mike Wallace and I really have no use for Mr. Finch.

Amen VINCE.Finch pulled the rug out from under Jason's feet pure and simple.How can you take a 20th place car, and expect a driver to win with it? Sauter couldn't do it. So what does Finch do? He puts Wallace in drivers seat. Give me a break....

Jason was the only reason I watched bush, He has the most experience out there, Do not put those cup boys in bush, You dont see Major League players going down to AAA ball when they want to do you, So they should not allow those Cup boys in Bush, Come on Jason, find a ride for we can pull for you again.

To all you Phoenix Team fans, i see that mike wallace did not do any better than Keller last week on NASCARS easiest driver track in the series- Talladega. Maybe its the team and the equipment that needed changed...I hope Jason lands in a new driver seat soon!

from BGN News - Keller lands a new ride for Richmond>>>>

Following speculation that began in Phoenix, we're being told Jason Keller has locked in an agreement to drive the No. 34 car in Richmond. The start would mark the 400th for Keller.(05-03-06) Team PR: This weekend in Richmond, veteran driver Jason Keller will achieve his 400th career start while piloting the #34 Frank Cicci Racing w/ Jim Kelly Chevrolet. Tommy Houston is the.only other driver to meet this mark in NASCAR Busch Series history.“ I feel that this milestone can’t come at a better track then Richmond . It’s one of my favorite tracks, I’ve had a pole and a win here and to accomplish this goal Friday night is really neat” said Keller. Cicci hopes to continue the relationship with him to help him accomplish the driver with the most starts. The team has had limited sponsorship throughout the season and is still searching for a primary for the rest of the season. They hope that teaming up with Jason will attract a sponsor who wants to be connected to a quality driver and team.(FCRwJK PR)(05-04-06)

Jason Keller's days in a competitive busch ride are done. 35 is old in Busch because it's just a development series now for the Big teams of Nextel Cup..Jason should go to the trucks series..he'd have more of a shot at wins or likely championships...just a reminder though...in 2004 Johnny Benson drove for finch and before Richmond he was released as well so obiouvsly we have a long-time Busch Owner with no eye for true talent

James Finch can rot! I pretty sure that Jason will make it through this and be back out there. Grady, you are right about the Busch series is becoming a development program. Thanks Nextel owners! All we can do is keep supporting Jason in everything he does. If you have XM call into Claire B Lang and keep his name out there. I am sure a lot of these owners listen and let's keep them thinking.

THIS MAYBE THE CHANCE MIKEY WALTRIP HAS TO GET A DECENT DRIVER FOR ONE OF THE TOYOTAS. I'D RATHER HAVE JASON ANY DAY OVER MIKEY OR DJ.
