2013 Atlanta: TriStar Motorsports NASCAR Nationwide Practice Recap

TriStar's Ready for "Real Racing, Real Fast" in Atlanta:

Bliss to Make Eighth Start at Atlanta:

Earning his 17th top-20 finish of the season at Bristol Motor Speedway last weekend in the No. 19 Tweaker Energy Shot Toyota; Mike Bliss will make his eighth NASCAR Nationwide Series start at Atlanta Motor Speedway for Saturday night's Great Clips / Grit Chips 300.

"Atlanta's a really fun track," said Bliss. "It's great because you can move around multiple racing grooves. Tires wear out pretty fast there, so your car handling is always changing."

In Bliss' seven previous starts at Atlanta, he has started from the pole once and in the top-10 twice. The Milwaukee, Oregon native's best finish came in 2008 when he finished seventh.

Bliss has finished in the top-20 at the first five 1.5-mile tracks this season. In 23 of the 33 events on the schedule this year, Bliss still maintains the 13th position in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Driver Point Standings.
Green Continues to Fill in at Atlanta:

Jeff Green will return to the driver seat of the No. 14 Camry for Saturday night's prime time event at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Green continues to fill in for Eric McClure who is still recovering from an illness.

"Atlanta is a tough, but fun race track," said Green who will drive the Hefty®/Reynolds® Toyota for the third consecutive week. "I think our team has the potential for a really great finish this weekend. Although it's challenging, I'm looking forward to the test."

Green will make his 12th NASCAR Nationwide Series start at Atlanta Motor Speedway for Saturday night's 22nd Annual Event. He has earned one top-five and one top-10 at Atlanta with his best finish of fourth earned in 2001.
Chase Miller to Drive the No. 10 at His Home Track for TriStar Motorsports:

Chase Miller will be behind the wheel of the No. 10 Toyota Camry for the third time this season. The Canton, Georgia native will attempt his seventh start at Atlanta Motor Speedway and his third start for TriStar Motorsports.
Whitt and Takagi Team Up for the Great Clips / Grit Chips 300:

Coming off of a 14th place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway, Cole Whitt will be back behind the wheel of the No. 44 Takagi Tankless Water Heaters Toyota for this weekend's Great Clips / Grit Chips 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Whitt will make his second Nationwide Series start at the fast 1.5-mile oval. Last year, Whitt earned an eighth place finish in his Nationwide Series debut at Atlanta and he hopes to capitalize on his fearless spirit to finish in the top-10 again.

"Atlanta is a really fast track," said Whitt, who will make his 11th start for TriStar Motorsports under the lights Saturday night. "Atlanta is definitely different than any other 1.5-mile track on our schedule. It has multiple grooves so you are able to move around to figure out what works best with your car. Also, tire wear is a big thing. Once they're worn down you can slide all over the track," he said.

Takagi Tankless Water Heaters will be on the No. 44 Camry for the third time this season. In their first two outings, Whitt scored a 15th place finish at Michigan and a 17th place finish at Indianapolis. Having only competed in 10 of 23 events so far this year, Whitt is currently 21st in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Driver Point Standings and has helped the No. 44 team maintain the 20th position in the Owners Point Standings.
