Cassill will drive at Martinsville Speedway in Monday’s STP 500 (2 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) and at Texas Motor Speedway for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 on April 8 (2 p.m. ET on FS1, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

The Martinsville start will be the first of 2018 for the 28-year-old Iowa native. Cassill has spent the past two seasons driving for Front Row Motorsports and has 259 starts to his name in the Monster Energy Series. His best finish of fourth place came at Talladega in fall 2014.

StarCom had a seat to fill after the team announced on Sunday night that it had mutually parted ways with driver Jeffrey Earnhardt. The grandson of Dale Earnhardt had made five starts for the team in 2018 with a best finish of 21st in the season-opening Daytona 500.
