Bliss Considers Atlanta Motor Speedway a Favorite Track ... Mike Bliss considers Atlanta Motor Speedway to be one his favorite tracks. The site of his last NASCAR win, Bliss has an impressive record at the 1.54-mile quad-oval. In the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, he has one victory (10/28/06) and two top-10 finishes in three starts. Bliss has one pole award (10/30/04) and two top-15 starts in just two races in the NASCAR Busch Series.

Bliss has three NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He has one top-20 start at the speedway with a track-best starting position of 16th (03/20/05) and an average starting position of 26.0. Bliss has one top-15 and two top-20 finishes at the track with a track-best finish of 13th (10/30/05) and an average finish of 19.0.

Bliss on Atlanta Motor Speedway ... "I guess you could say that Atlanta Motor Speedway is my favorite track because it is fast with multiple grooves. Last October, I won the Truck Series race and we had a season-best run going in the Cup Series. We nearly captured a top-10 finish when the engine blew with four laps to go. We feel like we have something to prove, both at Atlanta Motor Speedway and in the NEXTEL Cup Series this weekend."

Atlanta Equipment Notes ... BAM Racing will unload chassis #29 this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is the same car that the team ran in Atlanta last October. With qualifying set by owner points due to rain, Bliss started the race in the 41st position. He worked his way through the field and was running in the 10th position with four laps to go before engine failure relegated him to a 26th place finish.

BAM Racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway ... BAM Racing has ten starts at the 1.54-mile quad-oval. The team has a track-best starting position of 24th (03/14/04) with an average start of 36.9. BAM Racing has a track-best finish of 23rd (10/31/04) at the speedway with an average finish of 30.6.
