September 2013 Race Preview – Landon Cassil
CASSILL EYEING BIGGER GAME AT RICHMOND
RICHMOND, Va. – Landon Cassill scored one of his best runs of the Nationwide Series season in the April ToyotaCare 250 at Richmond International Raceway.
This week he’s back for more – and hopefully an even better result.
Cassill finished the spring race on the lead lap and recorded a 19th-place finish. It was a $20,000 payday.
“Richmond is one of the best tracks we go to,” Cassill said. “You need good speed there, but it’s also a short track so you have to handle, too. Even if you’re off a little, though, it’s wide enough that you can pick a different groove. It’s definitely a driver’s track.”
Cassill will be driving the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 4 car again this week.
All RIR Nationwide activities are bundled into Friday. Practice will be from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., with qualifying at 4:05 p.m. and the race at 7:30 p.m.
The event will be the 1,000th in the history of the Nationwide Series. The opener was held in 1982 as an outgrowth of the former Late Model Sportsman Series.
THE RACE: 187 miles, 250 laps, race 25 of the Nationwide Series season
