After earning an 11th place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last year, Bliss was hopeful for another positive outing at the 2nd Annual Indiana 250 on Saturday. Starting 21st, Bliss and his Tweaker Energy Shot team worked feverishly to massage a tight handling car. Unfortunately, a turn for the worst occurred when Bliss Bliss was forced to pull his No. 19 Camry behind the wall resulting in a 36th place finish.
However, just shy of the half-way mark in the 100 lap event, Bliss began experiencing mechanical issues while battling in the 18th position. Easing his Toyota down pit road, Bliss pulled his Tweaker Energy Shot Camry into the garage area for further diagnosis. Deciding the car was no longer able to race, Bliss sat out the final laps of the Indiana 250 to finish 36th.
“I think we had a top-15 car and we just encountered a case of bad luck,” said Bliss. “We were on course to balancing out the conditions of our car, when the unexpected happened. I greatly appreciate the support of Tweaker Energy Shot this past weekend and I wish we could have earned them a better finish.”
Bliss remains 13th in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Driver Point Standings. Bliss and his team will now wipe their slate clean and concentrate on Saturday’s US Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway.
