Cassill qualified 27th and raced in the 20s all afternoon. He and JD Motorsports with Gary Keller teammate Mike Wallace finished back-to-back, Wallace taking the 25th spot.

“Texas is a tough track to get a grip on because you have to deal with the speed and handling,” Cassill said. “Our Flex Seal Chevrolet ran pretty well. We just needed a little more to move up.”

Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski won the race. Austin Dillon finished fifth and leads Sam Hornish Jr. by six points atop the Nationwide standings with only two races remaining.

The series runs at Phoenix this weekend and closes the season Nov. 16 at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida.
