CASEY MEARS QUOTES:
"We are very optimistic about this weekend," Mears said. "We tested at Watkins Glen last week and had a few struggles but we have worked on them and are looking forward to this weekend. This will only be my second road course race in a stock car. Although we're not going back to the same road course track for a second time my experience at Sonoma and testing should definitely help me this weekend."
