CASSILL TAKES ANOTHER SHOT AT DAYTONA SUCCESS
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Landon Cassill knows the promise of Daytona International Speedway.
In 2011, Cassill rolled home third in a Nationwide Series race at DIS, one of the spotlighted venues on the 33-race Nationwide schedule.
In the tight packing drafts of Daytona, almost anything can happen.
“It’s a great track, and you can put yourself in position to do great things here,” Cassill said. “So much can happen in just a few laps. You can go from first to 15th and back in no time. It’s just the way Daytona racing works.”
Cassill will get his next shot at Daytona success in Saturday’s DRIVE4COPD 300 Nationwide Series opener. He’ll challenge the 2.5-mile track again in the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller G&K Services No. 01 Chevrolet.
Cassill, 24, is back for a full-series run in JDM’s Chevrolets after running in 23 Nationwide races for the Gaffney, S.C. team last year. Cassill carries sponsorship from G&K Services and Flex Seal.
Daytona practice is scheduled to begin at noon (ET) Thursday. There will be a second practice at 3 p.m.
DRIVE4COPD qualifying is scheduled at 1:10 p.m. Friday, and the race will get the green flag at 1:15 p.m. Saturday.
