2013 Atlanta: Mike Bliss NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

Race Notes:

After his 18th top-20 finish of the NASCAR Nationwide Series season at Bristol Motor Speedway, Mike Bliss was eager to maintain consistency as he raced Atlanta Motor Speedway for the eighth time in his Nationwide Series career.

Early on (lap 2) Bliss radioed to his Crew Chief Paul Clapprood that the No. 19 was "really tight".

Bliss and his 'Reliable' crew took advantage of the event's first caution on lap 36. Taking four tires and fuel, as well as making an air pressure and wedge adjustment he restarted 18th.

Settling in for a long green flag run in the 23rd position, the once tight Camry, was now "loose in". Bliss also said he had "no right rear grip and it's tight through the middle."

On lap 92 Bliss came to pit road for a green flag pit stop, where the crew made an air pressure adjustment, changed four tires and topped his Toyota Camry off with fuel; returning him to the track in the 23rd position.

The third caution of the night for debris came on lap 104. Bliss was still unsatisfied with the handling of his Toyota and brought the 19 to pit road where Clapprood called for four tires, fuel and a track-bar adjustment.

When the event's final caution fell with 19 laps to go, Bliss and team decided to stay out to maintain track position ultimately resulting in a 22nd place finish.

Post Race Quote:

"We had a really hard time trying to find a balance in the car this weekend. I felt like I was over driving it at times just to try and figure things out. I appreciate Reliable Heating and Air coming on board this weekend, I wish we could have finished better for them." - Mike Bliss
