Good for Casey maybe he'll get some better attention instead of be on a team with a bunch of superstars and get lost in the shuffle.

I don't know, lol. I don't dislike them or anything. I only not care for one driver out there well maybe 2! But the rest are ok! I do like Casey Mears and that has a lot to do with his last name and his relation to Rick! LOL.

Yeah, instead of Gordon, Johnson and Earnhardt Jr.! He has to compete with Harvick, Burton and Bowyer, lol!

Now Burton gets no media and he deserves to have a lot more and more fans he's pretty good I think :) So is Bowyer. The other one grrrrrrrr.

I think it sucks that bowyer looses the 07 car. They should give Mears the 33.

RCR already has no faith in Mears! Why the hell did Childress hire Casey when he doesn't think he can qualify the car every week?

I think it has more to do with the sponsor. General Foods wanted a high profile driver and Mears just isn't it. I think the original plan was for Bobby Labonte to take RCR's new ride but that didn't work out. I like CM but I just don't think he has it to be much more and a mid-pack driver.

Yep, Clint will be going into the 33 with General Foods as his sponsor.

Clint will also lose his crew chief and crew-they all will stay with the 07, the talked about it last night and said that Gil Martin said he didn't like it one bit, he wants to go with Clint, and that there would be lots of "fall out" with the crew. I adore Casey, but I don't think this is fair to the 07 team and this was all done at the request of General Mills, not Mr. Childress.

I love Casey but its not fair to Clint. General Mills did not want Casey because of his relationship with Kellogg's.
