Armstrong at Atlanta Motor Speedway: Dakoda will be making his third career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Atlanta Motor Speedway to go along with one Camping World Truck Series start at the track. Armstrong has one top-20 finish in XFINITY Series competition which came in last years event at the 1.5-mile speedplant.
Dakoda’s Thoughts on Atlanta: “Atlanta is one of the fastest tracks we race on but it’s also a track that always has you searching for more grip. While the racing surface is one of the oldest that we race on, it does allows for racing just about everywhere – top, middle and bottom. With the weather being cooler this week that will make the track pretty fast and have more grip.”
“We are coming off a decent season opener last week at Daytona and this will be the first time I get to work with my new team, JGL Racing, on an intermediate track. I look forward to it and want to really thank the guys on this team for all of their hard work.”
Daytona Rewind: Dakoda Armstrong and his JGL Racing team entered their first NASCAR XFINITY Series race together at Daytona International Speedway with high hopes after a busy off season of preparation. At the end of the 300-mile event, the New Castle, Indiana native would bring his No. 28 Winfield Toyota home safely to a 14th-place finish in the running of the Powershares QQQ 300 at “The World Center of Speed”.
While Armstrong finished in the 14th position in the season opening event, he sits in the ninth spot in the overall NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers’ standings – 11 points out of the top spot.
