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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
