Landon Cassill is an American professional stock car racing driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He drives the No. 38 Ford Fusion for Front Row Motorsports. Not content to simply strive to be one of the sport's top drivers, Landon also competes in triathlon to maintain his top fitness level.
In 2014, after finishing the Coca-Cola 600, a 600 mile NASCAR race, Cassill ran 14 miles from the Charlotte Motor Speedway to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Why? Just because...
Fans of NASCAR know that the drivers aren't just mentally tough. But, these pilots are athletes too. The rigors of racing - pulling some massive g-forces, handling sweltering temperatures, and operating a supercharged car -- showcase the endurance and fortitude these drivers posess.
Landon finished 7th in the 25-29 age group at the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 Muncie where he also qualified for Worlds.
He finished 103rd in the 25-29 age group at the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Austria and vows to come back for another round!
Cassill competes in at least four triathlons each year and will tackle the 2016 season with the Garneau TR1 bike, custom clothing, shoes, helmet and more.
