Casey Mears enters the Ford EcoBoost 400 with three 20-something finishes in his last three Homestead starts. He was 26th in 2011, 29th in 2012, and 28th in 2013—all with his current team.
Mears could finish in the top-20 with a little luck this week, however; two weeks ago he finished 18th in the AAA Texas 500 after starting 38th. He rolls off the grid 29th for Sunday’s race. Sat, Nov 15, 2014 12:42:00 PM

Casey Mears kept his perfect streak of top-15s on restrictor-plate, superspeedways alive with a 10th-place finish in the Geico 500.

Three of these strong runs were top-10s, which made him one of the best values at his salary cap level in most games. He also has earned five other top-15s. One of these came at Phoenix this spring. He could be a great dark horse in two weeks on that same track.

Casey Mears has been an exceptional value on plate tracks this season. In his three starts at Talladega and Daytona, he has a perfect record of top-15s, which he shares with only two other drivers: Denny Hamlin and Austin Dillon.

Mears is the driver most likely to fly under the radar screen this week of the three with top-15 streaks. As such, he makes a great differentiator on one’s roster and could help win this week’s fantasy contest.

Casey Mears has scored six results in the 20s in six races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. His best result was a 20th in the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky and his worst was a pair of 28ths at Vegas and Texas.

Consistency allows fantasy owners to plan. Expect a result in the 25th-place range and place Mears on the roster if he fits the final niche.

Richmond was the best short track in 2014 for Casey Mears. He finished 19th in the Toyota Owners 400.

Mears’ other three short track attempts ended in a 27th and 26th at Bristol, plus a 24th on the other flat track of Martinsville. Players should look for a result in the high teens or low 20s this week and plan accordingly.

Casey Mears has been a consistently solid performer on unrestricted, intermediate speedways in 2014. Six of eight races on similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks have ended in results of 26th or better.

That will not make Mears an anchor to any roster, but he could provide a good value as the final selection if he fits a fantasy players’ budget. His latest two races on this track type at Kentucky and Michigan ended in top-20s with a best of 17th in the Pure Michigan 400.

Casey Mears became the third driver to slap the wall in the first session of qualification. Like Almirola’s No. 43, his No. 13 may require a backup.

Mears was not particularly fast in practice and was looking for more speed in time trials. It is difficult to imagine him as one of the Irwin Tools Night Race’s dark horses.

Casey Mears may very well be the top dark horse at the Glen. His last five road course races have all ended in results of 16th or better.

Mears has quietly scored those results, which actually improves his value in most fantasy games because he will not be on the competition’s radar screen. Mears will outperform nearly every salary cap and if a player needs to roll the dice, he could even be a decent value in Yahoo!’s Group B.

Casey Mears finished in the 30s in his last two flat track races after scoring a worst result of 24th in his four previous attempts on this course type.

Mears’ 23rd in the Pocono 400 was not overly strong, but he also has results of 14th at Phoenix and 19th at Richmond to make him a driver to watch. Without momentum on his side following a 38th in the Crown Royal 400, however, he will be of minimal use to fantasy owners this week.

Finishing 38th at New Hampshire, Casey Mears suffered his worst flat track finish of the year. His previous four attempts on this track type ended in a 14th at Phoenix, 24th at Martinsville, 19th at Richmond, and 23rd at Pocono.

Mears’ record works out to a 20th-place average finish, which could make him a good choice for fantasy players if he fits into one of the last niches on their roster.

Fantasy players may want to think of Casey Mears as "The Joker." So far in 2014, his best results have come on the wild card tracks of Daytona, Talladega, and Sonoma.

Mears swept the top 10 at Daytona, and added another pair of top-15s at Talladega and Sonoma, which means he should be considered at Watkins Glen and in Talladega’s second race. In addition, he has five other top-20s on a variety of tracks and that makes him a good provisional pick on other course types.

A top-10 finish at February's Daytona 500 had Casey Mears and his GEICO team looking forward to revisiting the famed superspeedway for the Coke Zero 400.

While three-wide racing is the usual suspect for frustration at Daytona, weather would wreak havoc and cause the cancellation of the final practice session, along with the second round of qualifying. Later, it would cause the postponement of Saturday night's race. Mears and company would overcome all obstacles and ultimately score a top-5 finish when the race concluded on Sunday.-Player Management Int'l

NASCAR has penalized drivers Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mears for their involvement in a post-race altercation in the garage area following last Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

Ambrose, driver of the No. 9 car, and Mears, driver of the No. 13 car, were found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing), and 12-4.9 (Behavioral Penalty; involved in an altercation in the garage area after the race) as outlined in the 2014 NASCAR rule book. As a result, Ambrose has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until May 28, while Mears has been fined $15,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until May 28.-NASCAR PR
