Mike Bliss Quick Facts:

* NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Mike Bliss will take the wheel of the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota for the first time at Dover International Speedway this weekend.

* Bliss has run in all 27 Nationwide Series races in the 2009 season, earning one win (Lowe's Motor Speedway), four top-5 finishes and 10 top-10 finishes.

* The veteran racer has also started nine NASCAR Sprint Cup races in 2009. Bliss has been a staple of the NASCAR scene since 1995, when he started in the Camping World Truck Series.

* The 44-year-old native of Milwaukie, Ore., has been racing since age 10.

CJM Racing Quick Facts:

* RIDEMAKERZ will return as the primary sponsor of the No. 11 at Dover.

* At the team's last race on Sept. 11 in Richmond, 18-year-old rookie driver Trevor Bayne drove the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota to a 7th-place finish, securing CJM Racing's sixth top-10 of the season.

* The team will bring chassis # 014 to Dover. # 014 is the same chassis the team ran at Bristol on Aug. 21.

Driver Mike Bliss on Racing the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota:

"The good part is, I've run at Dover with Paul Wolfe before. He's a good crew chief and has really good guys who care about what they're doing. So, together we've run well before, and the crew works well together, so it should be a good match-up."

Driver Mike Bliss on Dover:

"I like concrete. For some reason, I do well on concrete. I don't know why, but percentage-wise I do better at places like Dover and Bristol. So I enjoy this track and I'm looking forward to it."
