GAFFNEY, S.C. – Landon Cassill will return to the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller stable full time this season, driving the No. 4 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Cassill – who has driven for team owner Johnny Davis on a number of occasions over the years, including full-time campaigns from 2013-15 – looks to break back into the spotlight after not competing in many races last year.

The Iowa veteran sports a solid track record in Xfinity Series competition, with one top-five and 14 top-10 finishes during his career. Cassill has also made more than 300 starts in the NASCAR Cup Series and brings a wealth of knowledge to the Gaffney-based JDM team.

Last season, the No. 4 Chevrolet earned two of the team’s three top-10 finishes, at Pennsylvania’s Pocono Raceway and Daytona (Fla.) Int’l Speedway, respectively.

“Johnny and his team in Gaffney mean the world to me, and it is a great honor to be back in the No. 4 Chevy,” said Cassill. “We’ve done so much together, and look forward to accomplishing more this season. He’s got a great lineup of drivers to work with this season, and I can’t wait to see what we all get done together.”

The pairing of Cassill and Davis has a rich history that includes seven top-10 finishes and a best points finish of 12th in 2014.

Sponsorship news for Cassill will be released in the near future, as will one more driver announcement to complete the JDM lineup.

Cassill joins teammates Colby Howard and Jeffrey Earnhardt as part of the JDM roster.
