Landon Cassill on the Racing Writer’s Podcast
Landon Cassill has never won a NASCAR race or championship, but he’s got a few stories to tell from the many variables the sport has thrown his way. This week Cassill shares insight on StarCom Racing, how he came to be their full-time driver and what makes the organization a good fit for him. Having been in the sport since he was 18 years old, does Cassill feel like a veteran now? He digs into the many experiences he’s had even outside of the car, which includes being involved in race wins and championships; how Cassill wound up in NC with his grandmother and the fun memories involved there; getting his NASCAR start with Rick Hendrick; lost opportunities with Hendrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr.; remembering his first Cup start; if Cassill feels he’s been able to give everything he can for his owners; how hard it is to not get cynical; if he fears irrelevancy; what are some of the highlights from Cassill’s career that he thinks about; what he still wants to accomplish before being done driving. Music created by Tony Monge.
