Joplin, Mo. — Hillman Racing made the announcement on Sunday morning that Fuhu Inc., creator of Nabi, will come on-board the No. 40 Chevrolet of Landon Cassill for 18 races, starting at the Daytona 500.

“Landon Cassill is a promising young race car driver that exhibits real potential to be a top-10 NASCAR driver, However, we chose to sponsor Landon’s No. 40 car because of his impeccable character and dedication to co-invest in supporting and creating awareness for Autism! We are excited to join the NASCAR community and proud to sponsor Landon Cassill,” said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu.

The company will appear once again on the No. 40 in two weeks at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In addition, Cassill will donate five percent of his prize money to support families with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Hillman Racing will also help into the cause with a marketing program to increase the Nabi Inspire.

“Fuhu creates a high-quality of products that are both innovative and friend friendly. As the father of a young daughter, this means a lot to me. I’m looking forward to collaborating with Fuhu this season both on the track and with my donations my team is able to make on their behalf as well as helping to raise awareness to the cause,” said Landon Cassill.

Cassill will enter his fifth season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014. He has made a total of 117 total starts, but is still looking for that first career top-10 finish this season.
