With roughly a month to go before the Daytona 500 jobs are scarce in the NASCAR garage. Add Landon Cassill to the list of drivers looking for a ride as the 23-year-old has parted ways with BK Racing.
“We simply could not close out our 2012 agreement and complete an agreement for 2013. I am motivated and driven to find a new opportunity in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. I have proven myself as a championship caliber test driver, an exceptional qualifier, and I’d like to continue working towards my goal of becoming a race winner and champion in NASCAR. I would like to thank my BK Racing team and especially Burger King and Dr. Pepper for the opportunity to represent such iconic brands. I’m looking forward to my next opportunity in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.” said Cassill in a statement.
BK Racing was expected to field cars for Cassill and Travis Kvapil for the 2013 season. As recently as early January a team spokesperson said that Cassill and Kvapil would drive for the team.David Reutimann is expected to assume the seat of the No. 83 car. Reutimann drove for the team on a part-time basis last season.
