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. Mar 23 - 1:17 AM

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

Landon Cassill’s best results have come at Talladega SuperSpeedway during the past three years with an average finish of 20.0 in six starts.

Cassill’s strengths will align with Front Row Motorsports in 2017. The plate tracks are great equalizers and that means that a driver capable of staying out of trouble on these courses can often find his way to the lead pack.

Front Row Motorsports will have two familiar faces behind the wheels of its racecars in 2017.

Landon Cassill will return to the team and drive the No. 34 Ford after an impressive first season with the team in 2016. David Ragan, who drove for the Statesville-based organization from 2012 to 2015 and earned its first win, will rejoin the team to drive the No. 38 Ford. The team will continue its technical alliance with Roush Fenway Racing and its engine program with Roush Yates Engines. The team’s 2017 partnerships will be announced soon.

Landon Cassill will return to the No. 38 in 2017 with sponsorship still being finalized.

Cassill had one of his best seasons to date with seven top-20 finishes including an 11th at Talladega. Until sponsorship is announced for a majority of races, however, it will be difficult to commit to them for any period of time.

Landon Cassill qualified 27th and finished 25th this spring at Phoenix, which made him one of the best values at his salary cap level.

That was part of an eight-race streak in which Cassill finished in the mid- to high-20s or better. It took a while to adjust his cap and then he hit hard times again during the summer—but he should be considered this week in light of the fact that he has finished better than he qualified in every race during the Chase. That has added much-needed place-differential points to his total.

Landon Cassill has finished somewhere in the 20s in five of six short, flat track races this year while racing in the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford.

The only race in which Cassill failed to finish that well was the Federated Auto Parts 400 when he developed a brake problem that cost 50 laps behind the wall. His teammate Chris Buescher was still vying for a spot in the Chase when that failure occurred and it is a safe bet that Cassill can get back in top-30 form.

Landon Cassill has finished better than he qualified in nine of his last 10 Talladega SuperSpeedway attempts.

In the nine races in which he improved, Cassill had an average start of 38.2 with an average finish of 22.0. The only race in that span of events in which he finished worse than he started was occasioned by crash damage. Cassill should be considered for the final slot on one’s roster so long as a minimal finishing result is acceptable. He should at the very least earn positive points.

Landon Cassill finished 29th in back-to-back races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks at Kentucky Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway.

That should have come as no surprise. Five of his last six attempts on this track type ended in a narrow band of 25th through 29th. His outlying result was a 31st at Kansas Speedway, which is a consistency on which players can rely.

Landon Cassill is likely to score a top-30 finish this week in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He has finished that well in four of five starts on short, flat tracks with Front Row Motorsports.

The only time he failed to finish that well was in the Federated 400 two weeks ago. He experienced brake problems in that event while teammate Chris Buescher raced for a position in the top 30 in points. Cassill should also earn positive place-differential points because he has done so in the first four attempts on this track type in 2016.

Landon Cassill has shown consistency in his last three Richmond International Raceway starts. In those events, he has finished in a narrow band from 26th through 30th. He was 27th this spring.

Equally importantly, he showed consistency in this spring’s Toyota Owners 400 by starting 28th and finishing 27th—one lap off the pace. In 12 previous attempts, Cassill has finished on the same lap as the leaders only once. He was 25th in the April 2013 event on this track.
