Landon Cassill joins Nationwide Series team


JD Motorsports with Gary Keller has added Landon Cassill to their team. Cassill will take over the wheel of the No. 4 Chevrolet for the rest of the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule.

Cassill, 23, will begin driving the car when the series returns to action at Texas Motor Speedway. He has been driving the No. 33 Sprint Cup Series car of Circle Sport on a limited basis.

LAWSUIT: Cassill suing former team

“I am really happy to be joining JD Motorsports and racing the No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series,” said Cassill. “I went down to the shop and met with Johnny (Davis) and the guys, and I am excited for the opportunity. I look forward to helping them improve over the course of the season, and I believe we can race competitively starting at Texas.”

Cassill was the 2008 Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year but has struggled to attract sponsors and quality teams since.
