In the early 70s Roger, Casey’s Dad, started the “Mears Gang” quite by accident. Roger had prepped race cars in the backyard with many family members and friends volunteering to wrench so that he could race on the weekends. Roger, with family and friends in tow, would show up at different race tracks to shouts of, “Here comes the ‘Mears Gang’. It sparked an idea inside Roger and he went to the drawing board designing the infamous “Mears Gang” logo.
After years of Mears Gang being an active logo, it went dormant as Roger entered the world of professional racing. As Casey’s racing career took off, he decided to bring the Mears Gang back and carry on his Dad’s tradition. We would like to introduce to you the family “race drivers” members of the Mears Gang:
