GAFFNEY, S.C. – After running strong at Richmond International Raceway and recording the team’s best finish of 2013, Landon Cassill and the No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet will head to Talladega Superspeedway for the Aaron’s 299 on Saturday, May 4th. The top-20 finish moved the No. 4 car up 16 points in the owner’s standings, but still leaves the team outside the top-30 in points. In order to maximize their potential at the 2.5 mile restrictor plate track, the team will use JDM Chassis 011. This racecar was previously the backup car for the No. 01 team at plate races, but has been rebuilt into a Camaro and renumbered for this weekend. Powering the car will be a fresh ECR motor. Although Cassill will be making his first start at Talladega in the Nationwide Series, he is no stranger to success at plate races. In his only start at Daytona, Cassill was rewarded with a top-5 finish after drafting with veteran Tony Stewart for the majority of the day. Cassill, who recently completed a move into a new house, will be making his third start with JD Motorsports, and joining him will be Flex Seal. Along with the typical tight racing at Talladega is the potential for being involved in the ‘big one’, a scenario the team will work hard to avoid. Landon Cassill Quotes: “Last weekend was so much fun racing towards the front at Richmond. This is going to be a tough weekend for us, because we want to run and finish well, but we cannot risk getting involved in an early crash. I have had some good races at the restrictor plate tracks in the past, including pushing Tony Stewart to a win back in 2011. I’m looking forward to the race, I know we will have a good car and good power.” Tune in for the Win: The NASCAR Nationwide Series races at the 2.5 mile Talladega Superspeedway this weekend for the Aaron’s 299 and ABC will have a live telecast on Saturday, May 4th. NASCAR Countdown begins at 2:30 p.m. ET with the green flag at 3:35 p.m. MRN Radio and Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Ch. 90 will also carry the action Saturday. The racing will be preceded by qualifying at noon on Friday and two practice sessions at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Thursday.
