Statesville, N.C. – Landon Cassill has taken the No. 83 Burger King/Dr Pepper team to new heights. Cassill’s performance last week at Richmond marked his second-consecutive top-20 finish. It was also the team’s fifth-straight top-25. It is the first time that the No. 83 team achieved either of those feats. He’ll be looking to continue the hot streak in this week’s Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.
Cassill only has two Cup Series starts at Chicagoland. His best finish is 30th, which he scored last season. In Nationwide Series competition, he has two starts. His best performance came in 2008, when he finished 10th. Cassill’s best finishes of 2012 came at intermediate tracks. He had 18th-place runs at Michigan and Charlotte.
Doug Richert, crew chief of the No. 83 team, has called five Cup Series races at Chicagoland. He has a pair of 11th-place finishes to his credit. Three of his performances have netted top-20 finishes.
