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.

In various fantasy NASCAR games this season, Landon Cassill has scored top-15 points 25 percent of the time and top-20 points in nearly one-third. For a driver regularly priced at the bottom of the list, this makes him one of the best values in the game.

Cassill was a top-15 value the last time the series rolled into Bristol. He was not as flashy as the Roush-Fenway Racing drivers or BK Racing’s Matt DiBenedetto, but his results have been more consistent and that improves his worth.

Landon Cassill has not yet cracked the top 20 in 2016, but he has managed to finish in the front half of the field four times. His best result was an 11th at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May.

Cassill’s other three top-20s came on a variety of tracks. He was 16th at Auto Club Speedway, 19th at Dover International Speedway, and 20th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. One of his strongest suits is his ability to improve in race trim; he has finished better than he started in 18 of the first 22 races this season.

Landon Cassill has finished better than he started in 15 of the last 17 races this season. He also finished exactly where he started once.

Notably the only time in that span of events that he finished worse than he started was at Pocono Raceway this June. Cassill qualified 31st, but sustained crash damage to finish 36th. He should be a lock to earn positive place-differential points in games that offer them.

Landon Cassill is batting 0.500 in his last four starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways in regard to top-15s. He finished 11th this May at Talladega SuperSpeedway and was 13th in last year’s edition of the Coke Zero 400.

Cassill is a solid bargain in most salary cap games considering the overall strength of Front Row Motorsports on this course type. Fantasy owners should avoid the temptation to go all in on dark horses, but they should liberally season a roster.
Thu, Jun 30, 2016 02:30:00 PM

Landon Cassill was extremely consistent on road courses last year. He qualified 39th at Sonoma before finishing 36th. He then went to Watkins Glen International where he started 36th and finished 35th.

Those are not good enough numbers to make him fantasy relevant—especially in light of the fact that he has switched teams—but he should have a good set of mental notes on which to rely.

Landon Cassill almost cracked the top 10 at Talladega SuperSpeedway this May with an 11th-place finish and nearly earned a top-15 on the unrestricted, intermediate Auto Club Speedway when he finished 16th, but he has been a solid value because he has one of the five best place-differential averages.

Cassill has finished better than he started in 12 of 15 races this season for an average of 5.2 positions. With an average result of 25.27, he also finishes ahead of about one-third of the field. That makes him a great filler pick at the bottom on one’s roster.
