JEFFERSON, GA (February 24, 2011) – Wednesday morning, the weather did not look favorable for the Hendrick Motorsports team as they pulled in the gates at Gresham Motorsports Park. The clouds rolled by and the sun came out as the No. 48 Chevrolet Impala of Jimmie Johnson’s was being wheeled out of the hauler.
Landon Cassill, who finished third in the 2011 Nationwide race at Daytona International Speedway, climbed into the driver’s seat and settled in for a long day of testing.
“We always love coming to Gresham to test,” said Cassill. “It gives us an opportunity to make adjustments to the cars and it is a fun track to test on.”
Cassill is currently the points leader in the Nationwide series after his best career Nationwide finish at Daytona, where he finished behind Tony Stewart and Clint Bowyer.
The Hendrick Motorsports team had a successful test day at GMP and look forward to returning in 2011 for more testing.
