Landon Cassill has finished 21st and 20th in his last two starts with StarCom Racing.
At the end of 2017, Cassill gave Front Row Motorsports 10 consecutive finishes in the 20s. That suggests his pair of 20-something results with StarCom means that he is getting all there is out of the car. Bear in mind, however, that both Texas Motor Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway featured heavy attrition. Apr 20 - 9:57 AM

Landon Cassill has a ride after starting the 2018 NASCAR season on the sidelines. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series veteran has been named to drive the No. 00 Chevrolet for StarCom Racing this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

The announcement comes after Jeffrey Earnhardt announced via Facebook Sunday night he’s parted ways with the team after the first five races. Now, Cassill will run at Martinsville and Texas while Starcom evaluates its long-term plans. Cassill spent the previous two seasons of his Cup career with Front Row Motorsports. He has 259 career MENCS starts, scoring a career-best fourth-place finish at Talladega Superspeedway in 2014. He will bring along the United States First Responders Association as primary sponsor for the next two events.-Frontstretch.com

At just 28 years old, Landon Cassill has already made 253 starts in the NASCAR Cup Series. If it's possible for a Millennial to be considered a veteran driver, that's Cassill.

But the journey will have to continue elsewhere next season. Cassill said he was informed Monday he will not return to Front Row Motorsports in 2018, and he will now begin the process of finding a new ride. Cassill acknowledged he was surprised by the decision, but said "there's no message of despair." After getting over the initial shock, he said, there's been a feeling of anticipation to see what else is out there.-jayski.com

Landon Cassill brought Friday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice to a crashing halt with 1:37 remaining in the session. He spun in turn four and slammed the outside retaining wall.

Cassill destroyed his primary and will undoubtedly have to go to a backup. He had posted the 33rd-fastest time among 37 drivers before his incident.

Landon Cassill failed to finish on the lead lap this season until the Toyota Owners 400. He completed the distance there and again last week at Kansas Speedway in the GoBowling.com 400.

Cassill broke a transmission at Talladega to keep him from getting a three-race streak of complete races. The Coke 600 is the longest race of the year, so staying on the lead lap there will be a challenge.

Landon Cassill has shown consistency on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways in recent attempts with four of five attempts with Front Row Motorsports landing between 11th and 23rd.

Cassill was 16th this spring in the Daytona 500 despite suffering damage in two separate incidents. The only time he has failed to make the top 25 with his current team came last July on this same track. He should be considered a strong option if he qualifies outside the top 30 because he is liable to earn positive place-differential points: He has gained positions in 18 of his last 21 plate races.

Landon Cassill has not scored a top-20 finish in the Cup Series at Richmond International Raceway since 2012.

His best result in the past four years was a 25th despite the fact that he does not have any DNFs. His 25th-place finish in spring 2013 was also the only time that he finished on the lead lap.

Landon Cassill has been running at the end of every race this year, which has made him a reasonably good value in NASCAR Fantasy games.

His best result on one of the unrestricted, intermediate speedway was 22nd at Atlanta Motor Speedway; his worst effort of 29th came in his latest race, but he has a six-race average that places him 30th on the charts. That means he has consistently finished ahead of 25 percent of the field. One could do worse with their dark horse.

After finishing better than he started in 12 consecutive races, Landon Cassill started and finished 27th at both Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway in recent weeks.

Cassill’s qualification effort will give fantasy players a good idea of where he is going to finish. He moved up only one spot at Phoenix International Raceway to finish 28th and lost just one position at Auto Club Speedway to finished 27th.

Landon Cassill has steadily improved his results in the past four years at Auto Club Speedway with a best of 16th last year.

Cassill finished 30th in 2013 with Joe Falk, had a pair of 25ths with Mike Hillman in 2014/2015, and then last year’s 16th with Front Row Motorsports. His competition for another top-20 will be much greater this week, but Cassill should be evaluated in practice.

Landon Cassill finished 20th in last year’s Can-Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, which was his first top-20 on a short, flat track in his last 17 attempts.

Cassill was driving for this same Front Row Motorsports organization when he scored that finish. Then again, they also contributed to seven previous results outside that mark. Pay close attention to him in practice, but defer the decision of whether to start him until after practice.

Landon Cassill has been a pleasant surprise on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks since joining Front Row Motorsports with nine of 11 races in the 20s or better.

Cassill has supplemented his finishing results with positive place-differentials in eight of those 11 events. He finished where he started once, so he has lost spots just twice. Cassill’s most recent effort last week was a 22nd-place finish bolstered by five place-differential points.

Landon Cassill has two top-25 finishes during his career at Atlanta Motor Speedway, but he has not scored a top-30 in his last four starts.

Driving for Mike Hillman, his best recent effort was a 31st in 2014. Last year, he finished 36th with Front Row Motorsports. This team will contend for top-20s sometime during the season, but fantasy players may want to be a little cautious in the opening races.

Landon Cassill has not yet scored a top-10 at Daytona International Speedway in 10 starts, but he could still be one of this year’s top dark horses in the Daytona 500.

Cassill has a pair of top-15s, both of which came in modestly-funded entries for Mike Hillman. In fact, all 10 of his starts have come in comparable equipment and that suggests he knows how to pick his drafting partners with care. Last year, driving for this same Front Row Motorsports organization, he finished 23rd in the 500. A similar result would make him a decent value at his salary cap.

Love's Travel Stops will extend its successful partnership with Front Row Motorsports (FRM) into the 2017 season, joining Landon Cassill (No. 34 Ford) for 18 races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

The familiar yellow and red colors of the Oklahoma City, Okla.-based company will return for a half-season schedule that includes the Daytona 500, both races at the company's home track of Texas Motor Speedway, the spring race at Talladega and the Bristol Night Race. The 2017 season will be the fifth straight season that Love's has partnered with FRM. Love's Travel Stops is family-owned and operated with more than 400 locations in 40 states.-FRM
