CASEY MEARS QUOTES:

How are you going to do at Pocono?

"We are really looking forward to going back to Pocono and redeeming ourselves a little bit. We went there in June and had a really good car. I think we could have easily been within the top 10 until we ran out of gas, which put us a lap down. We didn't really get the finish we deserved there. I think we are going to have a really strong run there this weekend."
