Mears To Replace Papis In Germain Racing’s No. 13 Toyota

Casey Mears will replace Max Papis in Germain Racing’s No. 13 Sprint Cup Toyota starting at Atlanta Motor Speedway later this month. He will drive for the team in 2011, as well. Germain has a half of the season sponsored by GEICO. The team is still looking for sponsorship for 18 races next season.

The car will start and park in the two events before Atlanta, with yet-to-be-named drivers.

Papis will drive for Germain in the Camping World Truck Series next season in a GEICO-sponsored Toyota.

Update: Jayski [1] is reporting that Papis will remain in the No. 13 car for this weekend’s Carfax 400 at Michigan International Speedway and for next weekend’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
