Cassill, Kittleson hoping for fairy-tale ending at Gateway
It'll be a Cinderella story of sorts for Busch Series newcomers Landon Cassill and Travis Kittleson this weekend at Gateway International Raceway. The big question: Will the slipper fit?
- For Landon Cassill and Travis Kittleson, Gateway International Raceway could well be the gateway to racing success. At least that's what they hope heading into Saturday night's Gateway 250 Busch Series race at the 1.25-mile track just outside St. Louis. Cassill, who turned 18 on July 17, hopes to make his series debut in Hendrick Motorsports' No. 24 entry.Growing up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Cassill raced go-karts at age 10 and moved through the ranks, including stops in Legends cars, Modifieds and American Speed Association. So far with Hendrick Motorsports, he's started two NASCAR Grand National Division Busch East Series races and one ARCA event.
I'm pumped up. I'm hoping for the Cinderella story. It's the opportunity of a lifetime to get in a Joe Gibbs car.
