Phoenix International Raceway is not a track that experiences a lot of changes from the spring to the fall, but for some reason Casey Mears has been much better in March than November. He has finished on the lead lap in his last three spring races, but failed to complete the distance in the fall.

Fantasy owners should not be fooled by his 20th-place finish this spring or his 14th in the two previous editions of that race. Leave him in the garage unless he is exceptional in practice.

Longtime partner, GEICO, announces that they have extended their relationship with Germain Racing as the primary sponsor of the No. 13 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry through at least the end of the 2018 season.

GEICO is wrapping up their 15th season as a team sponsor and their eighth with Germain Racing. Along with the sponsorship extension comes a new primary paint scheme, as well as new GEICO Military livery that will appear at select races during the season. Additionally, Germain Racing and driver Casey Mears have agreed to a three-year extension that will continue Mears' status as the driver of the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS through the 2018 racing season.-Player Management International

Casey Mears has been consistently strong on plate tracks in recent seasons with Germain Racing; five of his last nine races ended in top-10s with another two resulting in top-15s.

That gives Mears a batting average of 0.777 in regard to top-15s on this track type. While no one is immune from trouble on the plate tracks, the more one stays out of accidents, the less likely they are to get into another.

Casey Mears got loose exiting turn four in the first round of qualification for the Hollywood Casino 400. He tagged the wall hard and will have to roll out a backup car.

At the time Mears was one of the four slowest drivers so he is not going to have to go very far to find the back of the field on Sunday.
Oct 16 - 6:30 PM

Casey Mears posted the ninth-fastest single lap in practice with a speed of 187.715 mph. He was one of five Chevrolet drivers in the top 10.

In recent events, Mears has been better in the spring race than in the fall, but this fast speed could predict a turnaround. He is cheap enough in most salary cap games to encourage fantasy players to take a risk and a finish in the mid-20s is possible. That makes him an acceptable value.
Oct 9 - 8:54 PM

Casey Mears has been extremely consistent at Dover International Speedway in his last four starts. These races ended between 24th and 27th and that is a good indication of where he will finish this week.

The last time Mears failed to finish in the 20s, he almost cracked the top 15. He finished 16th in the 2013 FedEx 400, which was also the last time he finished on the lead lap.
Oct 3 - 10:18 AM

Casey Mears has improved in each of his last three New Hampshire Motor Speedway races. He was 38th last summer, 22nd in this race last year, and nearly cracked the top 15 with a 16th this July.

Mears does not need to finish in the top 15 to be a good value this week. He will earn enough points to justify his salary cap in most games if he can finish in the top 20 and gets a result that is better than his starting position.
Sep 24 - 7:55 PM

Casey Mears has been with Germain Racing since 2010. Today, the team announces Mears will continue to wheel the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS in 2016.

Together with Germain Racing, Mears has become known as a restrictor-plate specialist of sorts, including logging a four-race top-ten finish streak at Daytona International Speedway, a feat not commonly experienced by fellow Sprint Cup competitors.-Player Management International

Casey Mears drove off course in turn two during the first practice session for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. There was no visible damage, but he returned to the garage so the team could check out the undercarriage.

Mears has two top-10 finishes, but the latest of these came in 2008 while driving for Hendrick Motorsports. His last three attempts ended in results of 16th or better, so he could still be a strong dark horse if he logs some uneventful laps later in the day.

Fantasy players looking for a top dark horse will want to pay close attention to Casey Mears at Michigan International Speedway this week. His worst result in the past four races on this track was a 25th and he was 17th in his most recent outing.

Mears is going to fly under the radar screen for much of the weekend and that will only add to his appeal as it will make him a major differentiator on one’s roster.
Jun 11 - 9:12 PM

Casey Mears is riding a four-race streak of finishing on the lead lap at Pocono Raceway and should be able to extend that to five on Sunday after qualifying 18th for the Axalta We Paint Winners 400.

In his last four races, Mears rolled off the grid much further back in the 20s. Early track position and a better-than average pit selection will keep him in contention this week and should at least allow him to finish on the lead lap—probably somewhere in the 20s.
Jun 6 - 6:13 PM

Casey Mears has more momentum on plate tracks at the moment than he has ever had in his career. Five of his 11 career top-10s at Talladega and Daytona have come in the past seven races.

While nothing is predictive on plate tracks, top-10 streaks are certainly a better sign than long-standing results outside the top 20. Mears enters the weekend with three consecutive top-10s to his credit at Talladega SuperSpeedway and Daytona International Speedway combined including a 10th in last fall’s Geico 500.
May 1 - 1:52 PM

Casey Mears has two top-fives and four total top-10s to his credit at Texas, but none of these have come in his last 15 attempts.

In that span of races, Mears has run for some powerhouse organizations including Hendrick Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing, so fantasy owners are within their rights to be a little concerned about his odds this week. Last year Mears finished 28th in the spring and was 18th in the fall.
Apr 10 - 2:24 PM

On the strength of a sweep of the top 25, Casey Mears has established his team in the top 16 in points.

Mears had one of his best finishes this season at Martinsville when he scored his third top-15 in 2015, but even stronger runs by David Ragan and Denny Hamlin actually dropped him from 12th to 14th in the standings. Mears could use that as a catalyst to improve further and aim for another top-10. He finished sixth in the season-opening Daytona 500.
