* Mike Bliss will climb back behind the wheel of the No. 4 Open Joist Dodge this weekend at Kentucky. It will be Bliss' third start in the Bobby Hamilton Racing Dodge.

* He will be making his fifth start at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday. He has three NASCAR Busch Series and two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts at the 1.5 mile oval.

* Bliss competed in the Busch Race at Kentucky last month. He started 16th and finished ninth.

* Bliss will pilot "Demon" at Kentucky. This particular chassis last competed at Michigan International Speedway with Bobby Labonte behind the wheel.

Bliss looking for third top-10 finish: The Open Joist Racing Team is hoping for the same success this weekend they have had the last two times Bliss has driven the truck. Bliss recorded a fifth place finish at Dover and a seventh place finish at Milwaukee last month.

Fastenal Summer Interns at Kentucky: The contest winners of the Fastenal Racing Internship program will spend the week at BHR working to prepare the Dodges for this weekend's event in Kentucky. Jaysen Delpierre, a recent graduate from Des Moines Area Community College, and Kyle Paulson, a recent graduate from Vincennes University, will get their hands dirty this weekend as they each work on the race crews at Kentucky.

Mike Bliss on Kentucky: "I have a win at Kentucky in the truck series. So, I am hoping for the same result this weekend. Every time I climb into the Open Joist Dodge we have ran competitively. I ran the Busch race there last month and the track has definitely changed over the years. It has settled in now. It is a lot rougher than it used to be, but it still provides for great racing."
