According to the 05/19/06 edition of The Greenville (S.C.) News, Jason Keller will attempt to qualify Greg Biffle's Busch car at Nashville June 10th and Kentucky June 17th. Keller said he is still optimistic about his future in the Busch Series but said he is considering making the move to the Craftsman Truck Series.

I'm an employee at Phoenix Racing.It is kinda funny reading some of the post that you people have wrote.Jason Keller is a super nice guy and the same goes for Mike Wallace.As you have seen lately,we have strugled and it has not been all the driver's fault.There has been some seriously overlooked areas on the cars that has got us into trouble.It really hurts to read these post and see all of you downgrade this Race team.Don't bad mouth us until you know all the facts.You need to work at one of these Teams to realize the pressure that is on the shoulders of the Owners and Crew members.So please slack up on Finch and let us get straightened out and see what we can do.

I understand what you are saying Bonnie, but your team was pretty quick to push Keller out the door without giving him a fair shot. Mike, I am sure is a great guy, but it just wasn't nice what ya'll did to Jason. It does not look like Mr. Finch did his home work and was too quick in making a change. There is no way a team can come together in such a short time, looks to me like someone is too impatient, good luck on your job, hope you stay long enough to see your team improve. I really hope your team does improve, but NASCAR has got to do some changes to keep the Nextel driver along with their resources (BIG MONEY) on a limited basis. I really have not watched alot of races this year, the Busch is not like it use to be. It is just a play ground for the big boys to come and push around all the little kids and say we are here, get out of our way. I guess Tony Stewart wishes he had not been at one of those Bush races. What would happen if a Pro football player went back to his old college and played on Sat. before his big game on Sun, and what if he messed his knee up. Do you think it would be allowed in his contract? Think he would ever do that again? I did not want to see Ricky driven the Home Depot car Sunday, don't get me wrong I like Ricky. Nascar is getting out of hand, but it will never be the same without Dale Sr. around.

Hey Carey,I agree with you on most part.Mr.Finch didn't make the decision on his own,you have to go with what the Sponsor's want.Miccosukee wanted better performance and they wasn't pleased with the way the season was starting out.They (Micco.)are the ones that you have to answer too.So,if they want a driver change,then thats pretty much it.Maybe that makes alittle more since,Everyone at the shop liked Jason,and wish him the very best,but I too thought it was to quick to juge him.So I guess the money talked and he had to walk.Now,about Nascar,yes I agree 100% with you,they have taken the fun and excitement out of racing all together,PERIOD!!!And the money part has really gotten out of hand,especially for the single car teams such as ourselves. P.S. I don't know where the name Bonnie came from,thats not my name,it just popped up as location.

THANKS FOR RESPOUNDING TO MY NOTE, I HOPE THE BEST FOR YOUR RACE TEAM. I LIVE IN GREENVILLE AND HAVE VISTED JASON SHOP WHEN IT WAS IN GREENVILLE, I DO NOT LIVE VERY FAR FROM IT. I HAVE MEET JASON A FEW TIMES, WE JUST HAVE TO PULL FOR THE HOME TOWN BOY. I HAVE SPENT MANY A NIGHT OUT AT GREENVILLE PICKENS SPEEDWAY WITH MY SON, HE USE TO RACE. SO I KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT RACING AND HOW THINGS WORK WITH SPONSORS. THANKS AGAIN, AND GOOD LUCK.

If Miccosukee wanted a top ten finish, then duh, they should have left Jason Keller in the car. I think this team is all over the place and I don't believe it is the sponser calling the shot's. I think the truth is just now creeping out ... Cale Gale. Whatever! Jason Keller definitely deserved a better chance than this lack-luster, shotgun approach, redneck Finch team gave him.

What happened to Mike Wallace?? Looks like he failed to
get the job done in Jason's car. I think Cale Gale will fail also.. Jason deserves more that this team has to offer.I keep hoping to see Jason get in a winning car.....I know he can get the job done if given a chance......

Hey Joyce,Did you watch the Busch race Saturday?Apparently Mike can still get the job done and it also proved that we are still capable of running in the top ten.Things break on cars and the driver has no control of that.So to all you REDNECKS that says we can't..........HAHAHAHA.Cale Gale is a rookie and that was his first Bush race,I think that was a very impressive run.He needs more seat time and he will be another top ten driver.So don't just jump to conclusions until you see all the facts.

Yes I did see the Busch race and was suprised with Mike's run.
Please I am not a redneck and I wish you the best. Just don't let
him run any more cars around the wall like he did Truex......
Good luck friend......

Let's hope Jason finds a ride soon. I have lost all interest in the Bush series this year. I say lets pull all of our resources together and get Steve Addington back with Jason and go win some races.

Hi Chip, I agree with you, I can not watch a bush race anymore. It is not the same without Jason out on the track. I just can not believe that with him so close to setting a record for the most bush races someone has not giving him a ride. He is one of the best out there, when he has a good car. What is wrong with these Cup owners?

Keller is back at IRP. This could be Brewco's first win of the season.. I am glad Mike W. and Cale are getting the job done for Phoneix Racing. They have a great team and I wish them the best for the rest of the season. Jason loves this track Carey and I hope for a great finish. Make some noise for his 400th start!!!!!!!!!
