Landon Cassill has blown engines in back-to-back races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He retired on lap 134 of the AAA Texas 500 last fall and lap 92 of the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500 last week at Atlanta.
Teams have to press the envelope to find the line and Cassill’s three previous results on this track type ended in the 20s. Give the No. 40 team another race or two on unrestricted, intermediate speedways to work out the bugs and then consider starting them as a dark horse. Mar 4 - 1:16 PM

Landon Cassill was occasionally a good value on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year, but he could also be uneven. He failed to qualify in his first attempt at Las Vegas and then had results ranging from 21st to 43rd in the next nine races.

Two of his strongest runs came in the last three races on this track type. He finished 21st at Kansas in the fall and 23rd at Charlotte. His last attempt ended in a DNF and last-place finish, however, so he should be approached with some caution.
