Several news outlets are reporting Casey Mears will drive the 83 this weekend because regular driver Brian Vickers has been hospitalized with an undisclosed medical condition (here’s a link to the Fox News story). For you Yahoo! Fantasy NASCAR players, this is significant because Mears will now have relatively strong equipment in Group C, giving you a good alternative to regulars such as A.J. Allmendinger, Sam Hornish Jr., Scott Speed and Paul Menard.
