Germain Racing has extended Casey Mears’ contract through the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, the team announced on Tuesday.
“I’m really happy to announce that Casey Mears is back in the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS next year,” said team owner Bob Germain Jr. “He’s been an integral part of the team’s growth and success over the past five years and I am confident he can continue to help us move forward and reach our goals. We’ve come a long way as a team, and assembled a group of extremely talented people who enjoy working together. As the team owner, that’s really the thing I’m most proud of. And, of course, the long term support of GEICO has given us the stability we needed to make it all happen.”
Mears has been with Germain Racing since since 2010, with one top five and five top 10 finishes to his credit — all coming either at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway or Daytona Int’l Speedway.
“It’s really exciting to drive the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS again in 2016,” said Mears. “I think that it’s been a long time in the making here at Germain Racing, being competitive at the Cup level. It’s been a long process to get the GEICO program to where we are now. We are finally starting to see some of the benefits from all the hard work from the last four or five years.”
“I’m very excited to carry on the GEICO relationship and to be a part of Germain Racing’s continued growth.”
