Player Management International Media Release

BRISTOL, Tenn. (August 22, 2015) – Known as the World’s Fastest Half Mile, Bristol Motor Speedway always provides close racing and ample amounts of action with drivers completing 15-second laps around the 1/2-mile short track. Casey Mears and the Germain Racing team knew a challenge was before them, but after much preparation, the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS was ready for a 500-lap battle under the lights on Saturday evening.

Mears qualified his GEICO Chevrolet in the 28th starting position and aimed to maintain a clean racecar at the fast, cereal bowl-shaped oval. As the sun set at the Tennessee short track, Mears saw the green flag wave and quickly reported to his Germain Racing team that the front end of the car wouldn’t turn in the corners. The veteran driver continued to complete laps and fight through the ill handling, while crew chief Bootie Barker made air pressure, wedge and rubber adjustments to the GEICO machine.

Player Management International Media Release

Watkins Glen, NY (August 9, 2015) – Germain Racing arrived in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York on Friday looking to continue logging solid finishes.  Casey Mears hit the track on Friday sitting 21st in the point standings, but flirted with the thought of breaking back into the top-20 with a strong run at Watkins Glen International. 

Mears and his No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS darted off of the truck and shot straight to the top of the scoring tower, where they were the fifth fastest car at the conclusion of the weekend’s opening practice session.  Qualifying proved frustrating after a fellow driver inadvertently blocked the run of Mears in the first round, relegating him to 29th on Sunday’s starting grid.  (complete release
