DARLINGTON, S.C. – Landon Cassill matched his best performance of the season in Friday night’s VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200 Nationwide Series race at Darlington Raceway, finishing 12th.

Cassill maneuvered through a two-lap green-flag dash to the finish to claim 12th, on the lead lap. Earlier in the season, he finished 12th at Bristol Motor Speedway.

“It was a very good night for us on a tough track,” Cassill said. “The guys helped keep me up near the front, and we were able to bring it home close to the top 10. To get out of here with a good finish is a big deal.”

The finish boosted Cassill one spot in the Nationwide driver standings to 13th. He is only 15 points out of the top 10.

Rookie Chase Elliott won the race, his second series win in a row.

The Nationwide Series is off next weekend before returning to action April 25 at Richmond, Va.
