Bliss’ thoughts on Mid-Ohio:  “There’s something about road courses that keeps everything interesting lap-by-lap. I’m really looking forward to our third and final road course of the season. Mid-Ohio is very different than the other two courses we’ve raced this year, so we still need to be on our toes and put our best foot forwad.”
