STATESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 24, 2016) –The Fr8Auctions logo and colors will return to a Front Row Motorsports Ford Fusion, partnering with Landon Cassill’s No. 38 team for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the company’s home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The Atlanta-based organization offers auction services to companies looking to sell overstocked inventory through a distribution option outside of their traditional sales channels. Fr8Auctions processes millions of dollars of inventory at its auctions each week to buyers throughout the Southeast.
The company first partnered with Front Row Motorsports for the 2015 Sprint Cup season finale at Homestead Miami Speedway.
“We had our first experience with Front Row Motorsports in November at Homestead, and thought it was great exposure for our company,” said Fr8Auctions founder Marcus Barela. “We couldn’t wait to get back on board in 2016, and we’re thrilled that we’ll be working with a great racer like Landon Cassill. And having our logo and colors on the No. 38 at our home track of Atlanta makes it even better.”
Cassill has five Sprint Cup career starts at the 1.5-mile track, including a top-20 finish, and is eager to get the Fr8 Auctions Ford on track.
“It’s always cool to have a locally based partner at the racetrack, so we’re looking forward to having Fr8Auctions at Atlanta,” the 26-year-old driver said. “They get to bring all their guests and see how everything works behind the scenes and really celebrate the partnership there at their home track. And Atlanta Motor Speedway has so much character, it’s just going to be a great race for everybody.”

NSCS Daytona Starts: 8
Best Daytona Finish: 12th
"I'm pretty excited about the 500, but we still haven't really seen what the cars are capable of because we haven't drafted in them yet. We feel like we've made some good progress, comparing cars with my teammates, as far as speed differences. But, as far as how the car drives in traffic, we haven't established that yet. And we're looking forward to working on the balance and how it drafts in traffic because that's what's going to make the difference on Sunday with our Florida Lottery Ford.
"It's great knowing that we are locked in, although there is no feeling like racing your way into the Daytona 500. And this week there will be four drivers who have that fantastic feeling of knowing they raced their way in. But on a grander scale, Front Row Motorsports has earned their way into the field by having two charters, so I'm just proud to be a part of that."

The partnership with Front Row Motorsports will encourage race fans to join in the fun and “Just Imagine” becoming one of the 1,800-plus players that have become millionaires through the Florida Lottery.
The Feb. 21 race will be Cassill’s first with Front Row Motorsports, at a track where he has had two top-15 finishes in his past four starts. The 26-year-old driver looks forward to having a familiar partner on board for the Great American Race.
“I’ve loved working with the Florida Lottery, and it’s fantastic that they’re back on board for the Daytona 500 with our No. 38 Ford,” Cassill said. “They have a lot of fun with their sponsorship in a way that really gets fans’ attention, and we’ll hope to get them plenty of attention on track, too.”
Cassill and teammate Chris Buescher will make appearances at the Florida Lottery display at Daytona International Speedway on Daytona 500 race weekend. Announcements of scheduled appearances will be posted on Facebook at facebook.com/FrontRowMotorsports and on Twitter at @Team_FRM.
