DARLINGTON, S.C. (April 1, 2014) – A test session at Darlington Raceway featuring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Casey Mears will be FREE and open to the public today, April 1, from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Mears, who drives the No. 13 GEICO Chevy SS for Germain Racing, had already turned laps around the track Too Tough To Tame on Monday and will do so again today for the fans.

The ticket office will remain open throughout the night to accommodate fans who wish to purchase a ticket for the April 11-12 Bojangles’ Southern 500 race weekend, which is just days away.

Fans need to use the Gate 3 entrance to the track off of Highway 151. The parking lot is located next to the track’s administration building and certain sections of the Colvin Grandstands on the backstretch will be open for public viewing.

“If you enjoy the sound of a race car turning hot laps around Darlington Raceway, this is the opportunity to see it happen first hand with veteran driver Casey Mears,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “We’re just days away from the Bojangles’ Southern 500 race weekend and if you enjoy what you see at Casey’s test session, imagine how excited you’ll be when the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series visit Darlington Raceway next weekend!”
