MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Landon Cassill and StarCom Racing will honor Sterling Marlin with their throwback scheme during the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway this Sunday.
The No. 00 Chevrolet Camaro that Cassill will drive at Darlington is a throwback to the No. 40 Dodge that Marlin drove to victory at Darlington in 2002. The win was Marlin’s last of 10 victories in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Marlin, a two-time Daytona 500 winner, is currently battling Parkinson’s Disease and earlier this year underwent multiple brain surgeries to help treat the disease. Despite that, Marlin continues to be active as a driver at Tennessee’s Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.
Cassill’s car will also carry support from the Michael J. Fox Foundation, with a portion of the proceeds raised from t-shirt sales benefitting the foundation.
