MOORESVILLE, N.C. (November 24, 2003) ---Casey Mears will spend his Thanksgiving holiday weekend the same way he spent most of his year, racing. Mears, a member of "Team USA powered by CENTRIX Financial", is in the Canary Islands for the Michelin ROC Nations Cup.

"I am honored to have this opportunity to participate in a race of this caliber," Mears said. "It is very special for me to get the chance to race for my country against some of the best racers in the world."

The Michelin ROC Nations Cup was created to find the "World's Fastest Nation". Each country participating is represented by a circuit racer, a rally (or off-road) driver and a motorcycle rider. As driver of the No. 41 Target Dodge for Chip Ganassi Racing, Mears brings his off-road experience as well as his NASCAR experience to the table. Mears will be joined on Team USA by Boris Said, 2002 Trans-Am Champion and Travis Pastrana, Gold medalist at the X and Gravity Games.

The Michelin ROC Nations Cup will take place on Saturday, November 29th at 10 a.m.
