Beside Joey Logano, two other young drivers hoping to make an impression at Dover this weekend are Landon Cassill and Dominick Casola, a 2006 graduate of Red Bank Catholic High School.
Cassill, 18, will drive the No. 46 Morgan Dollar Motorsports Chevrolet in tonight's AAA Insurance 200 Craftsman Series race (5 p.m. start; Speed Channel, 8:30 p.m.), as well as the No. 5 JR Motorsports Chevy in tomorrow's Heluva Good! 200 Nationwide Series event.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., who owns the No. 5, has split time in the car this season with Mark Martin, Jimmie Johnson, Adrian Fernandez, Ron Fellows and Martin Truex Jr.
Casola, 20, is an Arca ReMax Series regular from Holmdel, N.J., who earned his stripes racing trucks at Wall Township Speedway, the proving ground for Truex. Casola will attempt to qualify for his first Nationwide race in the No. 102 Chevy prepared by Corrie Stott Racing.
"I watched a Cup race at Dover in 2002 and I was in awe," Casola said. "Now, to be on the other side of the fence is just unbelievable to me. To [compete in] a Nationwide Series race is something I never thought I would be able to do. This is a dream come true."
Nationwide Series qualifying is scheduled to begin at 10:35 a.m. tomorrow, with the race to go green at 3 p.m.
