Player Management International Media Release

Homestead, FL (November 22, 2015) - When the season finale rolled around in Homestead, FL, Casey Mears and the Germain Racing team were about to conclude their most successful year as a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team. Impending weather threatened for the second consecutive week, but Mears was able to get the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS on track for practice and qualifying.

Mears was 25th in the opening practice session and ended up a deceiving 27th in qualifying after a fellow competitor thwarted an otherwise strong qualifying run. Saturday saw Germain Racing show their real strength when Mears quickly hustled around the 1.5-mile oval and land 14th on the board in the final practice session of the 2015 season. Both team and driver eagerly anticipated Sunday's green flag. (complete release)

Player Management International Media Release

Avondale, AZ (November 15, 2015) – As the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season continues to wind down, Casey Mears and Germain Racing entered Phoenix looking for a solid run to hang their hat on.  They had an exciting week, announcing a three-year contract extension with primary sponsor, GEICO, and their arrival at the racetrack was met with the expected buzz.

Skies were clear and temperatures were warm when Mears and his No. 13 GEICO Military Chevrolet SS took to Phoenix International Raceway for practice and qualifying on Friday.  Mears finished up a solid 24th in the weekend’s opening practice session before moving into qualifying, where he would advance to the second round and score a 24th place starting position. 

While navigating a fast one-mile racetrack in tight quarters is challenge enough, the Sprint Cup Series would first go head-to-head with Mother Nature on Sunday.  While initially losing the battle again intermittent rain showers that would blanket the facility for most of the day, dry weather and the NASCAR’s track dryers would ultimately prevail.  Nearly seven-hours after the scheduled start time, Mears climbed into his No. 13 GEICO Military Chevy and got to work.(complete release)
