Casey Mears will race the number 25 Chevrolet Pro-2 with Ryan Beat Motorsports this weekend at Crandon International Raceway. Mears who is normally found behind the wheel of a NASCAR Cup Car also has extensive off-road experience. Mears has raced Trophy Trucks in the SCORE Baja 1000 as well as Robby Gordon Stadium Super trucks. His dad, Roger Mears is also a Baja legend.
“It’s a really cool opportunity to go out and have some fun and do something I’ve never really done before. My roots are in off-road racing, starting in Mickey Thompson Super Lites as a kid and playing in the desert in side-by-sides, sand cars, and that sort of thing. Watching my dad race off-road growing up and being able to follow in his footsteps is really special, and I hope to make him proud,” said Casey Mears.
Mears will join Amanda Sorensen who will also drive a Pro-2 for Ryan Beat Motorsports. Labor Day weekend is one of the biggest short course events of the year with three action packed days of racing at the “Big House.”
