TALLADEGA AL, 10-17-01 - Casey Mears, son of off-road racer Roger Mears and nephew of 4-time Indy 500 winner Rick Mears, will make his ARCA RE/MAX Series debut here this week at Talladega Superspeedway. The 2nd-generation driver has most recently raced in the CART FedEx Series replacing Alex Zanardi in the Mo Nunn Racing Honda Reynard team.

In his last 2 CART outings, Mears finished 17th on the streets of Houston and 11th at Laguna Seca. Mears' career-best CART finish was 4th in 2000 at California Speedway in Fontana CA for team Rahal. In addition, the Bakersfield CA driver was runner-up in points in the Indy Lights division in '99.
