Tommy Baldwin Racing Names Casey Mears Driver of the No. 36 Chevrolet

CHARLOTTE, N.C., 04/27/10 - Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) has named Casey Mears driver of the No. 36 Chevrolet, team owner Tommy Baldwin announced. Mears will be behind the wheel of the No. 36 starting this weekend at Richmond International Raceway for the Heath Calhoun 400. Mears takes over for Johnny Sauter, whose two-race stint as driver of the No. 36 ended this past weekend at Talladega, where he finished 41st.

"I'm excited to have Casey on board with the No. 36 and TBR," Baldwin said. "It's nice to have someone behind the wheel that is not only marketable but a proven driver as well. We look forward to getting out there at Richmond and seeing what we can do."

Mears began the year driving for Keyed-Up Motorsports and also served as Denny Hamlin's backup driver after Hamlin's knee surgery. Mears is eagerly anticipating another chance in the Sprint Cup Series.

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to go racing again," Mears said. "Tommy is working hard over at TBR and he is really looking to build something there. It's great to be part of that and I'm looking forward to this weekend at Richmond."
