Casey Mears likely to split 2018 between NASCAR, Global Rallycross and Stadium Super Trucks

Casey Mears still plans to compete part-time in NASCAR in 2018, but he’s also looking to expand his racing horizons.

The veteran NASCAR driver told The Checkered Flag recently that he also expects to race in the Red Bull Global Rallycross series, as well as Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks series.

“Right now I’m talking to a few NASCAR programs to do maybe limited stuff,” Mears told The Checkered Flag. “I don’t have anything that would be a full-time ride in a NASCAR series.

“I’ve been speaking with Robby Gordon in the Stadium Super Truck program. I think that’s a really cool up-and-coming-series and I’d definitely like to be involved with the GRC. It looks like a lot of fun.

“I think there’s enough difference between all those that it could leave room for doing a bit of both so we’ll see how it works out.”

Mears did not race in the Cup Series in 2017, having lost his ride at the end of 2016 to Ty Dillon in the No. 13 Geico Chevy. He has amassed 488 starts and one win (2007 Coca-Cola 600) in his Cup career, along with 13 top fives and 51 top 10s.

However, he did compete on a part-time basis in 2017 in the Xfinity Series, making 14 starts, with season-best finishes of ninth place at both Richmond and Road America. He also has 107 Xfinity starts with one win, 16 top fives and 34 top 10s.

Friday night, Texas Motor Speedway will play host to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with the winstaronlinegaming.com 400 race.

There will also be a different kind of truck taking part in the four-day IndyCar/NASCAR weekend, one that will do things a Camping World Truck can only dream about doing.

Remember Robby Gordon, former NASCAR and IndyCar driver? He’s gone on to create — and races in — one of the fastest growing motorsports series in the world, the Stadium Super Trucks (SST) series. The series will have two races at TMS on Saturday and one race Sunday.

Check out Gordon giving Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage and several Dallas-Fort Worth area reporters on one kind of wild ride that likely will have some of the Truck Series’ drivers envious.
