Congrats to Casey Mears!
Casey Mears celebrated his first career NASCAR Nextel Cup Series victory Sunday evening at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, NC after winning the Coca Cola 600. Mears had managed to work his way into a top-10 position and then made the gamble to stay out while the competition was pitting for a gallon of fuel. Mears team calculated his car would be out of fuel with half a lap to go, but Mears finished under power and ran out of fuel on the cool down lap, coasted the National Guard sponsored No. 25 Chevrolet down pit road and into Victory Lane.
