Driver avoids feeling, but not giving, road rage when out on the freeway

Sporting News goes behind the scenes -- and off the track -- with driver Landon Cassill.

My first car was ... A 1988 Ford Festiva.

"I would say I'm a 10, not because I have road rage but because I give everybody else road rage."

--LANDON CASSILL

My dream car is ... I would love an Audi R8. It's a very hot car.

My average freeway cruising speed is ... 80.

The best cruising music is ... I listen to everything. I'm a music junkie. Between my iPad and my iPod, I've got thousands of songs.

When I get a flat, I ... Can change it myself.

I change my oil every ... I come from the car business, so I drive a different car every couple of months. I usually change the oil when I get a car, and I try to take decent care of it.

Hybrids are ... More expensive.

My No. 1 car tip for the average motorist is ... I would rather more people drive on the offense rather than the defense.

My No. 1 pet peeve with the average motorist is ... I can't stand it when people are on the brake and there's no explanation why they're on the brake.

The Sprint Cup driver who would be the most maniacal on the road is ... Kyle Busch.

On a scale from 1-10, my road rage rating is ... I think I cause more road rage than I get. So I would say I'm a 10, not because I have road rage but because I give everybody else road rage.

I wouldn't be caught dead in ... I'll drive anything. Right now I drive a 1998 Honda Civic.
