NASCAR driver Landon Cassill and the No. 40 Carsforsale.com Car finished in 12th place at the Daytona 500 this Sunday. After announcing a partnership on Wednesday of last week, Carsforsale.com was the title sponsor for the Hillman Racing Team's No. 40 Chevrolet SS throughout Daytona Speedweeks.
The Daytona 500 took place on Sunday, February 23rd, with an initial start time of 1:00 PM ET. Action was forced to pause for a rain delay during lap number 38 of the 200-lap race. After a record-setting delay of more than six hours, drivers were able to resume The Great American Race. Cassill, who earned an automatic starting spot during Thursday night's Duel 2 Qualifying Race with a 9th place finish, started the Daytona 500 in Position 18, Row 9. Cassill was able to craftily avoid four major accidents on the track, and officially cross the finish line in Position 12.
"Huge thank you to everyone who made this possible," said Cassill after the race, "Carsforsale.com, Nabi, Little Joes Autos, Precon Marine, and all of our great partners. The race was a great success. With a great car, we finished 12th place in the Daytona 500!"
"We're incredibly proud of Landon and the Hillman Racing Team," said Sean Coffman, Owner of Carsforsale.com, "This weekend, and the entire Daytona experience, has been an excellent success. We've been able to reach a much larger audience of car enthusiasts, and bring awareness to the Carsforsale.com brand. It has been an honor to work with Landon and his team, and we're sure that this 12th place finish is one of many achievements to come."
