“I’ve been through some interesting life experiences and job experiences,” Cassill said, via The Gazette. “It’s definitely been a time of learning for me. I’ve been in good situations and bad situations and I’m grateful for all of them. A lot of times when I get down or I complain or something, my wife reminds me how lucky I am to be doing what I do for a living.
Cassill ran 33 of the 36 races in 2013 for Circle Sport in Cup, and 23 of the 30 races in a separate entry for JD Motorsports in Nationwide.
“I am extremely lucky. And I feel like I’m in the process of paying my dues and earning my stripes. And hopefully I earn the respect of my peers through all of this.”
