Landon Cassill will drive StarCom Racing’s No. 00 Chevrolet full-time in 2019, the team announced Monday.

StarCom Racing also confirmed that it has bought the charter it had leased from Richard Childress Racing this season. Richard Childress said on Friday it would be sold to StarCom.

With the charter purchase StarCom is guaranteed a starting position in every Cup points race. StarCom debuted in 2017 and has made 56 starts with eight drivers in two cars.

Cassill, who has served as an analyst for NBC Sports, competed in 29 races for StarCom in 2018. His best finish was 18th in the playoff opener at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

He enters next season with 288 Cup starts since 2010.
