Past Fantasy Outlooks
The nine-season veteran will return to the StarCom Racing team that he competed with last season. The No. 00 Chevrolet made 29 of the 36 events in an attempt to race full-time in 2018. The team has purchased the team charter that they leased last season in a commitment to race full-time this season. Cassill labored at times last year with this team, but still only registered three DNF's despite the team's small size and equipment disadvantage. This driver and team's highlight from last season was their season-best 18th-place finish at Las Vegas to kick off the Chase. It was one of only two Top-20 finishes for Cassill in 2018. They will look to improve upon that this season, but face an uphill climb.
Cassill will not return to Front Row Motorsports in 2018, and at the time of this writing he’s still a free agent and in limbo as far as a team. The 28-year-old driver possesses some valuable skills and experience with over 250-career starts in the Cup Series. Cassill only managed three Top-20 finishes last season, and no Top 10’s. That’s likely the reason why he and FRM parted ways. Still, he presents good value and experience for a small single-car race team. There are a handful of race teams that are organizing for a full-time run in the upcoming season, and Cassill will most likely land a driving gig for one of them.
After one season at Front Row Motorsports, Cassill has earned another season at this multi-car race team. He piloted the No. 38 Ford to seven Top-20 finishes last season and ended up 29th in the overall driver standings. Cassill limited his DNF's to just one and as a result he was running at the end of almost every race. That showed up in his respectable 26.3 average finish across the campaign. Cassill will now try to inch the bar higher for this race team in 2017. He and crew chief Donnie Wingo will be reunited and they will continue to improve speed, handling and team chemistry at the No. 38 team. The 26-year-old driver now has 223 starts of Monster Energy Cup Series experience, so Cassill has become a seasoned veteran in the lower tier of the driver pool.
Cassill's plans are still unannounced. He spent much of last season racing for owner Joe Falk and the No. 40 Chevrolet team. It wouldn't be at all surprising to see this association continue into 2016. Cassill made all 36 starts last year with an average finish of 30.6 and six DNF's. Not ideal performance by any stretch of the imagination, and a slight downturn from his previous year's numbers. The good news is that Cassill now has 187-career starts at NASCAR's top level, so experience is not an issue at all. The only bad news is that this team's lack of owner points makes Cassill a potential to fail to qualify any given weekend. While that didn't happen last year, it's still a possibility going into the new season. - Cassill signed with Front Row Motorsports in Jan '16.
Although it’s not written in stone, Cassill should be returning to the No. 83 Toyota of BK Racing in 2013. He raced the full schedule with this new team last season. The results were mixed but generally good for a young driver with a start-up team. Cassill posted seven Top-20 finishes en route to a 31st-place finish in the driver standings. That’s the good news. This driver and team will have provisional starts in the upcoming season, thanks to their Top 35 status. For that reason alone BK Racing is in a good position to keep Cassill in the seat of this Toyota Camry and keep the growth going.
