In various fantasy NASCAR games this season, Landon Cassill has scored top-15 points 25 percent of the time and top-20 points in nearly one-third. For a driver regularly priced at the bottom of the list, this makes him one of the best values in the game.
Cassill was a top-15 value the last time the series rolled into Bristol. He was not as flashy as the Roush-Fenway Racing drivers or BK Racing’s Matt DiBenedetto, but his results have been more consistent and that improves his worth. Aug 18 - 11:10 PM

Landon Cassill has not yet cracked the top 20 in 2016, but he has managed to finish in the front half of the field four times. His best result was an 11th at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May.

Cassill’s other three top-20s came on a variety of tracks. He was 16th at Auto Club Speedway, 19th at Dover International Speedway, and 20th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. One of his strongest suits is his ability to improve in race trim; he has finished better than he started in 18 of the first 22 races this season.

Landon Cassill has finished better than he started in 15 of the last 17 races this season. He also finished exactly where he started once.

Notably the only time in that span of events that he finished worse than he started was at Pocono Raceway this June. Cassill qualified 31st, but sustained crash damage to finish 36th. He should be a lock to earn positive place-differential points in games that offer them.

Landon Cassill is batting 0.500 in his last four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways in regard to top-15s. He finished 11th this May at Talladega SuperSpeedway and was 13th in last year’s edition of the Coke Zero 400.

Cassill is a solid bargain in most salary cap games considering the overall strength of Front Row Motorsports on this course type. Fantasy owners should avoid the temptation to go all in on dark horses, but they should liberally season a roster.

Landon Cassill was extremely consistent on road courses last year. He qualified 39th at Sonoma before finishing 36th. He then went to Watkins Glen International where he started 36th and finished 35th.

Those are not good enough numbers to make him fantasy relevant—especially in light of the fact that he has switched teams—but he should have a good set of mental notes on which to rely.

Landon Cassill almost cracked the top 10 at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May with an 11th-place finish and nearly earned a top-15 on the unrestricted, intermediate Auto Club Speedway when he finished 16th, but he has been a solid value because he has one of the five best place-differential averages.

Cassill has finished better than he started in 12 of 15 races this season for an average of 5.2 positions. With an average result of 25.27, he also finishes ahead of about one-third of the field. That makes him a great filler pick at the bottom on one’s roster.

Landon Cassill has scored two top-20 finishes in 11 Kansas Speedway starts. His most recent came in fall 2012.

In fact, both of Cassill’s top-20s came in the fall along with another 21st in 2014. His best effort in the spring ended in 29th on two occasions. These were scored in 2013 and last May.
May 6 - 12:13 PM

Landon Cassill has one NASCAR Sprint Cup top-five to his credit and it came at Talladega SuperSpeedway in October 2014. He finished fourth after starting 29th that weekend.

In addition, Cassill narrowly missed the top 10 last May on this same track when he finished 11th from 41st. Altogether, he has four top-15s and another 16th in 19 starts on this track type.

Landon Cassill had a great run in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. He raced among the top 10 most of the day and finished on the same lap as the leaders. Unfortunately, that was only the fourth time in his last 19 attempts that he completed all the laps.

When the cautions fall the right way for Cassill, this team is capable of running strong. Three lead lap finishes came in 2016 with the No. 38 scoring a 23rd in the Daytona 500, a 16th in the Auto Club 400, and last week’s 22nd. Cassill also has one of the 10-best place differentials so far this season with an average result of 25.4 compared to a start of 29.4.

Ty Dillon will get off to a slow start this weekend. On his first lap of qualification at Bristol Motor Speedway in round one for the Food City 500, he clipped the inside apron and spun. Dillon spun half way down the backstretch and crashed into Landon Cassill.

Dillon will roll off from the back of the pack. The damage to Cassill was minimal, but he had a decent lap before the contact. Watch Dillon in Saturday practice because he could be a hidden gem and earn major place-differential points.
Apr 15 - 4:32 PM

Landon Cassill has earned three results in the mid-20s in the first five races of this season. He was 23rd in the Daytona 500, 25th at Phoenix International Raceway, and 28th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Cassill’s two outliers represented one strong finish of 16th last week at Auto Club Speedway and a worst of 36th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. These combine for a ranking of 30th in terms of 2016’s average finish, which is 25.6.
Mar 22 - 7:10 PM

Landon Cassill will visit Phoenix International Raceway for the first time in the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford this week, and he hopes that gives him the added boost to score his first top-20 on the track.

Cassill has two top-25s to his credit with a 22nd as his high water mark. That came last spring in this race and marks the only time that he managed to finish on the lead lap. Cassill is a dark horse to finish with the leaders again, but attrition and a field of only 39 cars could provide him with an extra spot or two.
Mar 8 - 11:14 AM

Landon Cassill has failed to finish two of his last three Atlanta Motor Speedway races, both because of engine failures.

Cassill is behind the wheel on the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports car this year, however, and with David Gilliland in that ride they finished in the 20s in their last two starts. Cassill’s one complete race in the past three seasons ended in a 31st in 2014.
Feb 26 - 10:21 AM

Landon Cassill’s average finish on plate tracks is a modest 26.53, but depending on where he qualifies for the Daytona 500 he could be a good value. In 18 starts, he has improved over his qualification effort 72 percent of the time.

Nearly all of his failures to improve came as the result of on-track incidents or blown engines and he was easily the greatest value in the game in the 2014 fall Talladega race when he finished fourth after starting 29th.
Feb 4 - 12:12 PM

Six-year NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran Landon Cassill will join the Front Row Motorsports line-up to drive the No. 38 Ford for the 2016 season.

The 26-year-old Cassill has 187 Sprint Cup starts under his belt, most recently competing for Hillman Racing in 2015. The Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native has raced in all three of NASCAR’s national series, earning XFINITY Series Rookie of the Year honors in 2008. Cassill will join rookie teammate Chris Buescher at Front Row Motorsports, which will field two full-time Sprint Cup entries in 2016. Sponsorship programs for the No. 38 team will be announced soon.
