Casey Mears' Thoughts On What He Learned From His First Visit To Rockingham In February... "People warned me about how tough Rockingham was on tires before my first race there, so I thought I had a good idea.  I knew what it took to conserve tires while driving open-wheel cars, but no one prepared me for how quickly the tires would fall off at Rockingham.  I really had to learn what kind of pace I could race at."

Casey Mears' Thoughts On The Best Way Around Rockingham...  "The fastest way around Rockingham on fresh tires is around the bottom, but as the tires wear, the higher line starts to work better."

Casey Mears On Halloween... "We would always go trick or treating on Halloween when I was growing up.  I enjoyed trying to come up with some creative costumes and would get some realistic and scary masks to wear.  One year I was "Bigfoot" and another year I was a corpse and the skeleton of a pirate.  It was a lot of fun."
