Armstrong at Phoenix International Raceway:

Dakoda will be making his seventh career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Phoenix International Raceway to go along with one Camping World Truck Series start at the track. Armstrong has a best XFINITY Series finish of 18th at the Phoenix track which he has done four times including this event last season.

Dakoda’s Thoughts on Phoenix International Raceway:

“Phoenix is becoming one of my favorite tracks.  It historically has been a difficult track to get your car to handle on and with this new package we are running that will be even a more difficult task.  It will be important to utilize our practice sessions on Friday and develop a good platform for our No. 28 Toyota.”

“The guys on this JGL Racing team have been working extremely hard here at the beginning of the season with our fleet of new cars and this new package.  We have learned a good amount these last two races and we look to continue that and utilize what we have learned thus far to put forth a solid run on Saturday.”

Dash 4 Cash:

The running of the DC Solar 200 at Phoenix International Raceway this Saturday will be the first of four of the Dash 4 Cash events of the NASCAR XFINITY Series 2017 season.  This year’s schedule is followed by events at Bristol Motor Speedway (4/22), Richmond International Raceway (4/29) and Dover International Speedway (6/2).

Las Vegas Review:

As the NASCAR XFINITY season kicks off its annual early season “NASCAR Goes West” swing, Dakoda Armstrong and his JGL Racing team looked to kick off the first of the three West Coast races in style.  While still working to get a grip on the new package for his No. 28 WinField United Toyota, the 25-year old racer would score a 20th place finish in the running of the Boyd Gaming 300 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
