Casey Mears carries with him one of the most recognized names in the sport of auto racing. He has experienced success at each of NASCAR top two levels, winning races in both the NASCAR Xfinity and Monster Energy Series.
Versatility being a cornerstone for Mears, he has also won races in the Indy Lights Series, ARCA Series, and in 2006 he became the first full-time NASCAR driver to achieve an overall victory at the prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona.
While Mears boasts a distinguished resumé, his family dinner table features a banquet of successful careers. He is flanked by father, Roger Mears, who is a championship off-road racer, while his uncle, Rick Mears, has netted four Indianapolis 500 wins.
My Grandpa and Dad are the reason I have a passion for racing. They are great people to go during racings highs and lows.
My Mom has always been there for me off the track. Racing is all I’ve ever known, but there were times growing up she would encourage me to try other things and allowed me to see life outside of racing.
The best part when a race is done is seeing my number one fans - Trish, Sam, and Hayden
My first Nascar first NASCAR Cup victory in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
I really enjoyed my ARCA Racing days especially Pocono Raceway where I won twice in 2003.
