In 2000, Cassill competed in three different classes: two karting and a midget class. He won all three state championships on the same night. Cassill won four more state championships at the Newton Kart Klub in Newton, Iowa in 2001. He then started racing in a modified at the half mile Hawkeye Downs.

At age 16, he became the youngest winner in ASALMS history when he won at Lake Erie...

Don't believe for a minute it will have anything to do with actually winning a race.
So congrats to David Gilliland, Reed Sorenson ...
