TBR Working To Keep Mears For Rest Of Season

Per its Facebook page [1], Tommy Baldwin Racing announced that Casey Mears would be back in the car this week and they’re working to keep him in the car for the rest of the year.

The team plans to run the full races at Richmond International Raceway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and will field the No. 35 in addition to the No. 36 at Richmond and New Hampshire.

The team is also considering Steve Park for the fall race at Talladega Superspeedway.

On start-and-parking, Tommy Baldwin said:

I love that all you guys get frustrated when we start and park, but nobody gets as mad as me. It’s very aggravating to know deep down how good of a little race team we have, and when we do race we can finish in the top 25 with 1/32 of the budget. Nobody understands being a racer as much as I do as I’ve been doing this my whole life, and [I] think sometimes [I] have be pretty successful doing it with some great people working around me. We at TBR are trying as hard we can to find the proper funding and partners to be part of our program. I wake up every day to make this program as successful [as] we can in today’s hard ecomonic times. I hope someday we all can look back and say MAN WHAT A RIDE THIS WAS.

Also, there is an entry for a No. 35 to attempt the Helluva Good! Sour Cream Dips At The Glen at Watkins Glen International. That entry, however, is not a TBR entry.
