Armstrong at Pocono Raceway: While the NASCAR XFINITY Series will be making its first visit to Pocono Raceway, Dakoda will be making his sixth career start at the track known as the “Tricky Triangle”. Armstrong has two previous starts at the track in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to go along with three previous starts in the ARCA Racing Series.
Dakoda has a best Camping World Truck Series finish of 12th and a second place finish in the ARCA Racing Series at the Pocono track.
Dakoda’s Thoughts on Pocono Raceway: “Pocono is a fun track to race on but also very difficult at the same time. The long straight aways make it crucial to have good exit speed off the corners and keep that momentum up down the long straight away. The unique and different three corners of the track presents a challenge since they are all so different.”
“I have run a few races at the track which hopefully is a benefit to us this week since this is the XFINITY Series first visit to the track. We get a little extra practice time this week as well so hopefully all of this helps us come home with a solid finish.”
Meet Dakoda Armstrong: Dakoda will sign autographs for fans during the NASCAR XFINITY Series autograph session Friday, June 3, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time. The session will be located in the infield behind Victory Lane building.
Charlotte Rewind: The NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Memorial Day weekend is always one of the most special races all year. With family members in attendance, Dakoda Armstrong steered his No. 28 Winfield Toyota to a 21st-place finish in the running of the Hisense 300 at the Concord, North Carolina track.
