CASSILL ON THE ROAD AGAIN
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – Landon Cassill is ready to go road racing again.
As Cassill and the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team prepare for Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at the Watkins Glen International road course, he looks back on a fine performance earlier this year on the road course at Road America.
Cassill finished eighth in that race, matching his best performance of the season.
“Not everybody likes road courses, but they work for me,” Cassill said. “We ran really well at Road America in June, and there’s no reason we can’t have a nice finish this weekend at the Glen. We’re taking a good car up there.”
The Zippo 200 at The Glen is the first of two straight road-course races for the series. Next on the list is Mid-Ohio.
Nationwide practice is scheduled at the Glen Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 2:10 p.m. Qualifying runs will begin at 9:40 a.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 2:15 p.m.
