In 2011, Cassill rolled home third in a Nationwide Series race at DIS, one of the spotlighted venues on the 33-race Nationwide schedule. In the tight packing drafts of Daytona, almost anything can happen.
“It’s a great track, and you can put yourself in position to do great things here,” Cassill said. “So much can happen in just a few laps. You can go from first to 15th and back in no time. It’s just the way Daytona racing works.”
Cassill, 24, is back for a full-series run in JDM’s Chevrolets after running in 23 Nationwide races for the Gaffney, S.C. team last year. Cassill carries sponsorship from G&K Services and Flex Seal.
