Stats show Short Track Shoe:


After wrapping up his 350th NASCAR XFINITY Series start at the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway, Mike Bliss is ready for a change of pace this weekend as the series rolls in to “Thunder Valley”.  Bliss has competed in 65 short-track events throughout his XFINITY Series career. In those events he has earned seven top-five and 19 top-10 finishes. At Bristol Motor Speedway alone, Bliss has accrued two top-five and four top-10 finishes.


Bliss’ thoughts on Bristol Motor Speedway:Bristol is a really fun track. It’s a completely different dynamic than what we’ve been racing the past couple of weeks. I’m confident my guys have prepared a great piece and I look forward to this weekend’s race.”

No. 19 Toyota Camry: Crew Chief Paul Clapprood will unload chassis No.121 for the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300. This chassis was last used last weekend in Texas where he finished 24th.

Additional Notes:

–  This will mark career start 351 for Bliss in the XFINITY Series, which has stretched across 16-years.
