Landon Cassill (Photo Credit: Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images) JOLIET, Ill. – Landon Cassill will be shooting for a return to the top 10 in Nationwide Series driver points in Saturday’s EnjoyIllinois.com 300 race at Chicagoland Speedway.

To be sure, talent played a role, and talent is something Keselowski has in ample supply. Focus was a major factor, too. Throughout the week preceding the Talladega race, during a test session at Martinsville Speedway and on Friday and Saturday at Talladega, Keselowski answered questions from reporters in terse, clipped sentences, preferring not to fuel the fire that came to a blaze on the track and in the garage at Charlotte on the previous Saturday night. Keselowski had his blinders on, and the only point of interest ... FULL STORY »
