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.

Landon Cassill finished on the same lap as the leaders nine times in 36 races in 2015, which made him a good value when fantasy players caught him during the right week. Most of his strong results were scattered, but he had three straight top-25s from Phoenix International Raceway through Martinsville Speedway in the spring.

Cassill’s second-best result of 14th came at Pocono Raceway as part of back-to-back complete races. That consistency was just enough to lull fantasy owners into a false sense of security and often made him a questionable value.

Landon Cassill (#01 Florida Lottery Chevrolet Camaro) finished 16th in the November 21st NASCAR XFINITY Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 300 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The JD Motorsports driver started 20th in the lineup and completed 199 laps of the 200-lap event. Cassill, who competed in 29 of the season's 33 races, scored two top-10s and closed out the season 18th in the final 2015 XFINITY Series driver championship standings.

Homestead-Miami Speedway does not exactly fit into the same category at the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks because of its progressive banking, but it comes close enough to make projections for mid-cap teams. Cassill has earned 20-something finishes in five of his last seven 1.5-mile races. The two races in which he failed to finish that well were caused by either crash damage or engine failure.

Last year he barely finished in the 20s with a 29th in the Ford 400. He should easily improve this week and finish in the mid-20s.

Landon Cassill will add to his long worksheet at Kansas Speedway in Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 XFINITY Series race.

Cassill is a veteran at the 1.5-mile track. He has raced in 10 Sprint Cup, two XFINITY and one Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas. Cassill will drive the G&K Services/AB May Chevrolet for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in Saturday’s 300-miler.

NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Landon Cassill will be making his third NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start in the No. 40 MDM/Hillman Racing Chevrolet in Friday's Drive Sober 125 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway.

His best series finish was fourth at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on June 29, 2007.

Landon Cassill (No. 01 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro) finished eighth in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 at Darlington (SC) Raceway.

Started 19th on the grid and completed all laps of the 147-lap race. Cassill, who made 21 of the 24 series races so far this season, gained one spot to 18th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

Landon Cassill has made five Cup starts on road courses, but his best results have come on the high-speed Watkins Glen International. His best Sonoma Raceway effort ended in a 31st in 2012.

Cassill should be on a fantasy owner’s radar screen this week so that he can be evaluated. If he scores a top-30, he could be an interesting pick at the Glen in a couple of weeks where he normally finishes several positions better than at Sonoma.

An early trend this season seems to suggest that Landon Cassill should be watched closely on flat tracks. In the first 15 races of 2015, he has five top-25s and a 26th; four of these came on minimally-banked tracks.

Cassill’s two best finishes came at Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway with a 21st- and 22nd-place respectively, which means he should be on a player’s radar screen in four weeks at New Hampshire. Two of Cassill’s four DNFs this season came on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

Landon Cassill finished 35th in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, MI.

He started the No. 01 Buddie Toys Chevrolet Camaro 28th on the grid for the Great Clips 250. He completed 79 laps of the 125-lap race. Cassill slipped back one spot to 16th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings after this event.

For the first time in the past eight races, Landon Cassill completed all the laps of a NASCAR Cup race. He finished 25th among 28th drivers who went the full distance at Pocono Raceway last week in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400.

Cassill actually had a better result the previous week at Dover International Speedway even though he was five laps off the pace. He finished 23rd in the FedEx 400. Three of his last four attempts have ended in the 20s, so fantasy owners can expect another result in that same range.

Landon Cassill finished 17th in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC.

He started the No. 01 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro 21st on the grid for the Hisense 300. He led 4 laps of the 200-lap race. Cassill advanced two spots to sit 13th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings after this event.

Landon Cassill qualified 32nd for the Coca-Cola 600 and will probably finish in that same 30th-place range if the past similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this season are an indication. He finished 29th last week at Kansas Speedway after taking a provisional.

A more representative result might be his 32nd-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway after starting 33rd. Either way, his potential on this track type is not as great as on a short, flat course after scoring 20-something results in events at Martinsville Speedway, Phoenix International Raceway, and Richmond International Raceway so Cassill can be saved for another day.

Landon Cassill finished 20th in Sunday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, IA.

He started the No. 01 Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro 25th on the grid for the 3M 250. He completed 257 laps of the 259 lap race. He is currently 15th in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.
