Making Technology Mobile; Bliss Takes 18th at Dover

Debuting a new sponsor in MTM Technologies, Mike Bliss and his TriStar Motorsports team helped Make Technology Mobile at the 1-mile oval of Dover International Speedway. Driving the No. 19 MTM Technologies Toyota, Bliss started Saturday afternoon’s 5-Hour Energy 200 from the 17th starting spot and quickly gained positions upon the wave of the green flag.

With what he felt was a top-10 car, Bliss was running comfortably in the 14th position when the event’s first caution fell on lap 48. He and Crew Chief Paul Clapprood decided to bring the MTM Technologies Camry down pit road for a few adjustments. With an error on pit road, Bliss restarted 18th with a race car that was a little too tight.

“It was an all-day battle trying to find a balance with the car,” said Bliss. “It seemed everyone was racing the same speed, making it really hard to pass and maintain position.”

Bliss and crew took four fresh Goodyear tires and topped off with Sunoco race fuel during the first three pit stops of the race. Coming to the final pit stop, Bliss and Clapprood decided to put scuff tires on to try and help Bliss’ maneuverability.

Despite the fight for balance, Bliss never fell outside of the top-19.

Saturday’s finish at Dover marked Bliss’ tenth top-20 finish in 11 races this year.

“I greatly appreciate MTM Technologies coming onboard the No. 19 this weekend,” said Bliss. “I really wish we could have had a better finish for them; we had a top-10 car.”

Heading into the 12th race on the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule Bliss remains 12th in the Driver Points Standings.
