In his last five starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways, Landon Cassill has earned three top-15s—one of which was a fourth-place finish—but he has also finished outside the top 30 twice.

The good news is that Cassill’s best results in the past two seasons have come at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He finished 11th in this race last spring and was fourth in the fall. He also had a 12th in the 2014 Daytona 500, which makes him a solid choice for fantasy owners in need of a bargain.

Landon Cassill finished 10th in Friday night's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Richmond (VA) International Raceway.

He started the No. 01 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro 21st on the grid for the ToyotaCare 250. He completed 249 laps of the 250 lap race. Cassill won the Mobil 1 Driver of the Race award and also moved up one spot to 17th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

Landon Cassill posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session with a speed of 123.336 mph from laps two through 11.

Last week during a Bristol rain delay, Cassill tweeted about his confidence at Richmond. It would seem he knows what he is talking about and could be one of this week’s top dark horses.

Landon Cassill earned three straight lead lap finishes from Phoenix International Raceway through Martinsville Speedway and scored results in the mid- to low-20s each time. His last two races have been outside the top 30, however, and the closest he’s come to the leaders is two laps down at Texas.

Cassill has a lot of confidence entering Richmond International Raceway and that could make a huge difference. Last week he was involved in an accident that kept him from living up to his potential, but the Martinsville success proves he can race on short tracks.

Landon Cassill was credited with a 28th place DNF in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Bristol (VA) Motor Speedway.

He started the No. 01 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro 19th on the grid for the Drive To Stop Diabetes 300. He made it to lap 268 of the 300 lap event before exiting the race (Brakes). He is currently 18th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

Landon Cassill has finished in the mid-20s in two of three races with his current No. 40 Mike Hillman team.

Both of his mid-20s runs came in the last two fall Irwin Tools Night Races; he was only 30th last spring. His last five races on this track have all ended in race results that were better than his qualification attempts, and that has earned place differential points.

Landon Cassill finishes 32nd in Friday night's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

He started the No. 01 G&K Services Chevrolet Camaro 30th on the grid for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300. He completed 197 laps of the 200 lap race. Cassill moved up one spot to 17th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

In the final similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track race last fall, Landon Cassill blew an engine on lap 134 and retired in 43rd. His first start on the similarly-configured Atlanta Motor Speedway this spring also ended in a blown engine and last-place finish.

Cassill finally went the distance at Vegas one week later, but scored only a 35th-place finish. The upside is not enough to outweigh the risk of starting the No. 40 in the Duck Commander 500.
Apr 10 - 11:36 AM

Landon Cassill rides a three-race streak entering NASCAR’s first off weekend. He finished on the lead lap at Phoenix, Auto Club, and Martinsville.

Finishing on the lead lap puts a driver in position to capitalize on late-race mistakes by others and cannot be overlooked. Cassill’s worst finish in this three-race span was a 25th in the Auto Club 400, which made him a great value at his salary cap level.
Apr 2 - 9:16 PM

Landon Cassill finished 19th in last fall’s Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500. That result tied for his best-ever race with a fall effort in 2012.

Equally important, Cassill finished on the lead lap in the spring as well, which was the first time he was able to score back-to-back complete races on this track.

Landon Cassill finishes 21st in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Auto Club Speedway.

He started the No. 01 Bubba Burger Chevrolet Camaro 24th on the grid for the Drive4Clots.com 300. He completed 149 laps of the 150 lap race. He moved up one spot to 18th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings after this event.
Mar 21 - 8:50 PM

If Landon Cassill can finish on the same lap as the leaders this week at Auto Club, he will have his best overall effort since 2011 when he raced for James Finch.

That season, he finished on the lead lap at Auto Club and in one of Michigan’s two races. He scored a 24th in California and a 12th on the Upper Midwestern track. Last year he was only one lap off the pace in the Auto Club 400 and scored another respectable 25th while driving for his current No. 40 team.

Landon Cassill was credited with a 37th place DNF in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.

He started the No. 01 GK Services Chevrolet Camaro 22nd on the grid for the Axalta 200. He made it to lap 91 of the 200 lap event before exiting the race (Accident). He dropped four spots to 19th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

After experiencing back-to-back engine failures in the first two races of the season, Landon Cassill was grateful to see the checkers at Las Vegas. He finished six laps off the pace, but was running at the end in 35th.

Last year, Cassill blew an engine at Texas in the fall, but he came to Phoenix and kept his car running. He sustained some crash damage, but was ultimately scored a 29th-place finish, which put him in the top two-thirds of the order.
