NASCAR | Driver Spotlight – Landon Cassill

Landon Cassill made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut in 2006 for Hendrick Motorsports and has been racing pretty much ever since. Cassill has competed in all three of NASCAR’s national series. But he has not just competed, he posted top five finishes in all of them. Cassill also earned the 2008 Xfinity Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year. He was also the first driver to win in all three divisions of the ASA Late Model Series in 2006.

From his home track, Hawkeye Downs Speedway, he has come a long way. Not only has he raced in  all three of NASCAR’s series, but he has also raced in the ARCA Menard Series, K&N Pro Series West, K&N Pro Series East, and the X-1R Pro Cup Series.  Not to mention competing in the NASCAR Sprint Showdown from 2011-2019, where he got two top tens. He has also captured two top tens in Daytona 500 Qualifying races. But his racing doesn’t end there.

Cassill also competed in the Snowball Derby in 2010, 2011, and 2013. His worst finish was 11th in 2013. In both 2010 and 2011, he finished 4th. And that is still not the end. Cassill competed in 8 iRaces last year. Half of those races he finished in the top five.  He also had two more finishes in the top fifteen. In fact, his worst finish was 21st. With all this experience, which began when he was eight years old racing go-karts, it shows that Landon Cassill is a wheelman. He can drive a modified, a late model, a stock car, a truck. He can even drive the wheels off of a virtual game. He is currently driving the #4 for JD Motorsports in the Xfinity Series and is holding his own in 13th place in the standings.
