Mears Close To Signing With RCR, Sources Say

ESPN is reporting that Casey Mears is close to signing on to be the driver of Richard Childress Racing’s fourth entry next season, a source confirmed.

The team hopes to get the contract signed this week so an announcement can be made this weekend at Michigan International Raceway.

Right now, rumor has it that Mears would move to the No. 07 Jack Daniels Chevy, and Clint Bowyer would move over to the No. 33 General Mills Chevy. The reason: General Mills was not comfortable with Mears driving under the Cherrios banner next season because his current sponsor primary sponsor is Kelloggs.
