CONCORD, N.C. (June 26, 2007) – Casey Mears will attempt to make his 11th NASCAR Busch Series start of the 2007 season at New Hampshire International Speedway this weekend.
Mears, driver of the No. 24 National Guard Chevrolet, has only made his way around the 1.058-mile oval twice in his Busch Series career, with his best finish being 17th back in 2002.
But the National Guard team has accumulated six top-five and nine top-10 finishes in the Busch Series so far in 2007, and with that momentum, Mears is looking to capitalize on the team’s strengths and land another solid performance.
“I’ve had a lot of fun this season racing in the Busch Series as well as having the support from the National Guard,” Mears said. “Our National Guard team has been doing a tremendous job week in and week out.
“We continue to have great finishes and I couldn’t be more proud of how hard the guys work each week. With the success we’ve had so far, I’m looking to continue it this weekend at Loudon and also represent the 26th Infantry Brigade on the hood.”
The National Guard team will be honoring the 26th Infantry Brigade at New Hampshire International Speedawy. This brigade, also known as the “Yankee Division,” is located in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The NASCAR Busch Series race at New Hampshire International Speedway will air live on Saturday, June 30 on ABC at 2:30 p.m. ET.
