A driver for JD Motorsports over the past season, Landon Cassill has landed himself a full time ride with Kaulig Racing in the Xfinity Series.  And he brings along a sponsor in the deal.

Cassill will pilot the number 10 car previously driven by Jeb Burton with Voyager Digital Ltd as the primary sponsor.  Cassill will become the first driver to receive his entire paycheck in cryptocurrency.

Cassill will join Daniel Hemric and AJ Allmendinger as the three car Kaulig team in the Xfinity Series.

Cassill spoke on being a part of Kaulig Racing saying, “ultimately, Kaulig Racing is showing itself as a destination for good drivers and a place to win.  Not a stepping stone or a place that’s on the way up. It’s a place that’s up there and it’s a place that, I think, drivers call home.”

He added, “to drive for Kaulig Racing now, the goal is to win and I need teammates to lean on to help me do that.  I have to be able to take my driving to the next level, and there’s an entire new discipline that I have to learn that I haven’t been training the last few years. I’ve got to be able to close these races from the front row if I find myself in that position. I’ve got to be able to hit pit road in the lead and come out in the lead. I’ve got to do things different. And it’s going take the team at Kaulig Racing to help me get there, and that’s why Kaulig Racing is the destination for me.”

President of Kaulig Racing Chris Rice also spoke on Landon Cassill coming to the team saying, “we are really excited to bring Landon Cassill on board for the 2022 season.  Landon has competed in NASCAR’s top series for many years and has brought with him a pivotal partner in Voyager Digital. We are looking forward to this partnership with Voyager and think Landon will be a great asset to our Kaulig Racing family.”

CEO and co-founder of Voyager Steve Ehrlich spoke on the partnership with Cassill saying, “we built a historic partnership with Landon, as the first NASCAR driver to be paid in crypto, and continuing this journey with him is an incredible ride for Voyager.  We’re excited about this collaboration with Kaulig Racing and can’t wait to see what is next in Landon’s promising career.”

During his career Cassill has run 176 races in the Xfinity Series.  His best finish so far is a third place at Daytona in 2011.  He has also made 326 stars in the Cup Series and eight starts in the Camping World Truck Series.
