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.
