Landon Cassill has landed another sponsor for the Daytona 500.

Fuhu, named by Forbes the No. 1 most promising company in America, will be on the No. 40 Chevrolet as an associate sponsor in Sunday's race.

Fuhu will serve as the primary sponsor for 18 races, starting in Las Vegas. For the primary sponsored races, the car will have Nabi Tablet branding. Fuhu sells the Nabi, an Android-based tablet for kids.

''Fuhu creates high-quality products that are both innovative and family friendly. As the father of a young daughter, this means a lot to me,'' Cassill said.

Cassill raced his way into the Daytona 500 just days after getting hit by a car while riding his bike. He had road rash on his chin, arm and both legs, as well as a black eye and some bad bruising.

Cassill will donate 5 percent of his winnings in every Fuhu-sponsored primary race to Nabi Inspire, Fuhu's philanthropic arm, with the mission to offer direct support for families living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and help raise awareness. Fuhu will match that donation with an additional five percent donation.

''Landon Cassill is a promising, young, talented driver that exhibits real potential to be a top-10 NASCAR driver,'' said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu. ''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.''

Cassill made his Nationwide Series debut in 2007 and won rookie of the year in 2008 driving for JR Motorsports. He was a test driver for Hendrick Motorsports and made his Sprint Cup Series debut in 2010.
