Landon Cassill has left BK Racing effective immediately. The 23 year old out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa stated that the team and he just could not come together on a contract for the 2013 season.

"This is a tough decision but with one month before the Daytona 500 I have no other option but to leave the #83 BK Racing Toyota and pursue other opportunities. We simply could not close out our 2012 agreement and complete an agreement for 2013. I am motivated and driven to find a new opportunity in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. I have proven myself as a championship caliber test driver, an exceptional qualifier, and I'd like to continue working towards my goal of becoming a race winner and champion in NASCAR. I would like to thank my BK Racing team and especially Burger King and Dr. Pepper for the opportunity to represent such iconic brands. I'm looking forward to my next opportunity in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series," Cassill said. 

The move now leaves speculation as to who will replace Cassill in the #83 Toyota he piloted in the 2012 season. Reports are that David Reutimann is now the leading candidate to replace Cassill. Reutimann was at Preseason Thunder for BK Racing, splitting time with current BK Racing driver Travis Kvapil.

Reutimann ran two races with the organization in the 2012 season.
