Landon Cassill to compete full-time for StarCom Racing in 2019

StarCom Racing announced Monday it had purchased a charter from Richard Childress Racing for its No. 00 Chevrolet team, which will guarantee the team a spot in the field in all 36 races.

In addition, StarCom announced it has signed Landon Cassill to run fulltime for the organization next season. Cassill, 29, made 29 starts for the team in 2018, with a season’s best finish of 18th in the fall race at Las Vegas.

“We are coming off a successful first year for our new owners and team,” team manager and former driver Derrike Cope said in a statement. “We certainly endured a great deal of adversity as a start-from-scratch Cup team, learning along the way with positive results for the most part.

“With a continued commitment from our owners, Mike and Matt Kohler and Bill Woehlemann, we are looking forward to the prospects of being a better race team in 2019. We are extremely proud and pleased to have acquired the charter from RCR.

“We are excited to have contracted Landon Cassill for this coming year as I have enjoyed working with him in 2018 and what his experience brings to the race team. We are working hard now preparing for Daytona and cannot wait for the season to start.”

StarCom has also moved into a new 20,000 square-foot facility in Salisbury, N.C., and upgraded its engine program with ECR Engines.

“We put in a lot of work at the end of 2018 to make improvements for this coming year, and I think that work will pay off across the board,” Cassill said.

“The team is making big investments in cars and engines to step up our program, and it only motivates me to bring 110-percent as a driver.”

I watched the Talladega race, kind of off and on in between doing dishes and laundry. I know this beloved track has its dedicated fans but I'm sorry folks, I just don't enjoy team racing. I think stock car racing is meant to be an every man for…Continue

Hurray! I got back in synch with NASCAR just in time for the play offs! A couple of months ago, I switched service providers, going from cable to satellite. I think I only saw two races for the duration. Every week it seemed, there was some kind of…Continue
