2013 Texas: Landon Cassill NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

After racing its’ way into the top fifteen, the Johnny Davis owned No. 4 Flex Seal Chevrolet piloted by Landon Cassill suffered an engine failure, resulting in a 36th place finish.

The Texas Motor Speedway weekend started off with a bang for the team, as Flex Seal returned to sponsor the No. 4 entry with Landon Cassill competing in his first race for the team. The results were immediate, as the team ended both practices in the top 25. With confidence in the car, Cassill qualified for the race, and would roll of 26th.

Immediately from the drop of the green flag, Cassill moved the Flex Seal Chevy toward the front. While racing conservatively, the team eased up into 21st through the first round of stops. Just before halfway, the caution flag flew for Kyle Larson as he spun on the front stretch. Cassill had to dip low, driving onto the apron, to avoid the car. Crew chief Dave Smith radioed for Cassill to bring the No. 4 entry to pit road for adjustments and a new set of Goodyear tires.

The changes to the car, coupled with the new tires, resulted in a charge to front over the next 20 laps. Within 10 laps of the stop, Cassill entered the top 15, then securing the 14th spot. At that point, the driver immediately radioed to the crew that something was wrong in the engine compartment. As the cockpit filled with smoke, the crew met the car in the garage and discovered a broke piston as the culprit.

Although the results do not reflect where the team ran, Cassill was excited about the future. “Really a shame that we blew the motor on this No. 4 Flex Seal Chevy. The car was racing really well, and I was having a ton of fun out there in the top 20. These guys work hard, and so do the engines, and sometimes things just break. We will be back, there is more of this to come.”

The NASCAR Nationwide Series will have next weekend off, and return to action at Richmond the following weekend.
